Identity Management in Higher Education, 2011—Slide Presentation
Wednesday, June 1, 2011
This slide presentation illuminates findings from the ECAR 2011 research of identity management (IdM) practices in higher education. This slide deck can be adapted for presentations within your institution, since it is complete with data tables linked from charts to enable you to add your own institution’s data to the charts. The full study to which these slides refer investigated institutional readiness for IdM across several dimensions and looked at the impact on IdM outcomes. The work focused on a set of five core elements of IdM practices: authentication, reduced or single sign-on, enterprise directories, automated role- and privilege-based authorization, and federated identity. The study is based on a literature review, consultation with higher education IT administrators and IdM experts to identify and validate survey questions, survey responses from 323 higher education institutions (of which 137 took part in both the 2005 and 2010 surveys), qualitative interviews with 55 higher education IT leaders and staff, and two case studies, one examining the evolution of IdM at Coppin State University and one chronicling the development of a federated identity solution at the University of North Carolina.
