  13. 13. The solutions tried so far…and why we need something else<br />ESAA<br />Synchronized passwords<br /><ul><li>Some good examples
  14. 14. Working very well for these schools
  15. 15. But not easily transplanted</li></ul>Centralized identity store<br /><ul><li>E-asTTle (ESAA), ENROL (SIA)
  16. 16. Provisioning and keeping up to date is too hard
