In coordination EUMEDCONECT3, CHAIN-REDS and TERENA, ASREN will hold a technical workshop on Building Federated Identity Infrastructure to be held in Amman 17-19 June 2013.
This hands-on course is aimed at enabling NRENs and Campuses to setup Federated Identity Infrastructure in their own environment, and how to best pass that knowledge to their broader constituencies in their own language.
Historically, IP-based authentication has been a common mechanism for accessing external resources but denies a user access when working off campus. Shared accounts have solved the off campus issue but don"t allow personalization of a resource. These approaches are simplistic and fail when staff, students and researchers are off-campus, need to access collaborative resources intended for an individual user or want to use a resource intended for a specific group of users.
Federated Identity Infrastructure allows campus authentication systems to integrate with a wide variety of services on campus, within your country and beyond.
