Federated Identity Management: Challenges and Solutions

Abstract

NSF and NIH have joined the InCommon Federation and are enabling their applications to use federated identity for members of the InCommon Federation, an organization that provides a federated trust framework for research and education institutions and their partners. This session will review the management and operational opportunities and challenges associated with implementing federated IdM, including: what federated IdM does and doesn't do; level of assurance issues (Identity Assurance Framework); and how large facilities can leverage these technologies.
