Federated Environments and Incident Response: The Worst of Both Worlds?

Abstract

Incident-response processes and tools are, by-and-large, designed to guide reaction to situations within an organization and are geared toward incidents involving local users and systems. With federated identity, we're now expanding this and entering into agreements and relationships that enable an extended community to access our services and our campus constituents to use off-site services in an authenticated and authorized fashion. In this new context, how do you respond when someone from a collaborating organization is hacking your systems? This session will discuss the challenges in the policy, practice, and technology of addressing incident response and mitigation in a federated world.
