International Study of Identity Management and IT Security in Higher Education

Monday, July 9, 2007


This July 2007 survey is part of a study of identity management and information technology (IT) security in higher education sponsored by CAUDIT in Australasia, by EUNIS in Europe, and by the EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) in North America. Data from this study will form the basis of a report designed to help institutions position themselves in these evolving areas. Identity management refers to the business processes and infrastructure required to support the use of digital identities. Identity management is not the same as, but is related to, IT security, another top concern of IT leaders in higher education. The survey focuses on the key functions of establishing identity, user authentication, and authorization, as well as supporting infrastructures such as enterprise directory, reduced/single sign-on, and federated identity.
