How Identity and Access Management Can Help Your Institution Touch Its Toes
Jun 02, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This presentation was both fascinating and infuriating. I really liked the style of presentation - page forward through it quickly - and I think the argument is well reasoned. But - it is well reasoned from an institutional perspective. Which make things like fingerprints sound reasonable. Total: 2

Re: How Identity and Access Management Can Help Your Institution Touch Its Toes

At the presentation there was discussion of the importance of getting *people* in the middle of attribute release so that individuals can manage their privacy. As US higher ed wants to work more with other nations, we'll have no choice but to head in this direction because other nations' laws require it. I'll take a check or balance no matter where it comes from. I'll let others who might have been in attendance vouch for this discussion point or not.

Also, the major premise is really thinking about trust as an infrastructure - which for me more than implies that individuals can engage that infrastructure. The "personhood" paper in the references can't be bested IMO - that is a primary driver in how I'm thinking right now. [Comment] [Permalink]
