Social-to-SAML: Accepting Social Identities for InCommon Federated Services
Is your campus providing identity services to an ever-growing group of users: student applicants, parents, community members, continuing education enrollees, friends of the institution?  Some schools are using social identities (e.g., Google and Yahoo) to provide access to selected federated services, rather than creating university IDs for users who may have little or no continuing relationship with the institution.
This IAM Online will feature case studies for leveraging social identity, which allows people to log in through social identity providers and access certain protected campus resources. Attendees will also learn about a pilot Social-to-SAML gateway developed as part of the InCommon social identity working group and hosted by the University of Texas System.
Please plan to join us! You'll find more information about the presentation at
