NISO Two Part Webinar, Identity Management and Authentication Strategies, Part One - January 15, 2020

Organizations and institutions holding licensed content or other sensitive forms of data -- regardless of whether the data may be hosted in a library or in a proprietary service or platform setting -- must do so with the intent of minimizing any risk of leakage or unauthorized incursion by third parties. One solution consistently put forward in recent years is the use of federated identity management systems. An application verifies the user’s right to interact with a particular system by engaging with another system storing individual credentials and the various access rights associated with those credentials. However, depending upon the institution’s role and resources, hesitation may arise about the trustworthiness of such federated identity systems. This roundtable will feature discussion by a variety of stakeholders (chief technology officers, information professionals, producers of content and service providers) to talk about available system options, their reliability and the benefits gained in their use. Confirmed participants in this initial roundtable discussion include: Mark Bilby, Scholarly Communications Librarian, California State University - Fullerton; Tim Lloyd, CEO, Liblynx; Amy Pawlowski, Deputy Director and eResource Licensing Coordinator, OhioLINK; Mark A. Beadles, Chief Information Security Officer, OARnet; Laura Paglione, Partner, Spherical Cow Group; Todd Digby, Chair Library Technology, University of Florida; Phil Leahy, Services Relationship Manager, OpenAthens.
