In this panel session we will explore strategies that several universities use to address the challenges of using federated identity management (IdM) to improve privacy and security. These strategic approaches can be universalized to apply to almost every stakeholder group on campus. Federated authentication and authorization systems allow for seamless and secure collaboration and resource sharing within and among institutions, scholars, publishers, and electronic resource vendors. Topics will include concepts of identity management, the benefits of having an IdM strategy, an overview of the InCommon Federation, library resources and student services as examples of IdM systems in action, and third-party vendors as partners.
