Identity creation standards using PII
Colleagues, Conversations are taking place at UNM with respect to auto-generating identity credentials, and using PII to do that. I have my professional thoughts on the use of PII to auto-generate identity credentials (for use by persons, and by systems for provisioning), but to get a bit more of a sense of where others are, I'm curious: What are you all doing? Do you use PII in auto-creating identities (and do you publish those credentials)? Do you have a sense of whether best practices are moving toward the use of PII for such purposes, or do you all think this practice is on the decline? Thank you for your time, and if you all respond to me directly and off-list, I'll summarize to the group. Again, I appreciate your time and attention.
