Useful presentation surveying the use of and plans for identity management at (mostly) U.S. universities. Some items of interest: the major reason universities are looking at identity management is for reasons of security and privacy (80 percent); enhanced services comes second (60 percent). Another bit: the typical userid and password combination far outranks other technologies being used and even considered for use (kerberos was also popular). And you have to figure, any presentation that quotes Nietzsche in the second slide is going to be worthy of consideration.
