  4. 4. “in Identity 2.0, usage of identity more closely resembles today's offline identity systems, but with the advantages of a digital medium.

  29. 29. No Direct Relationship Between User-Institution-Resource Joint Information Systems Committee
  30. 30. Questions When is it better for the institution to physically host the resource for an end-user? Institution provided blogs, wikis, google video etc.? When is it better for the institution to manage an identity for the end-user? (registration / revocation). When is it better for the institution to verify identity for service providers? (authentication) When is it better for the institution to broker access to resources for the end-user (authorisation process)? Can this be disaggregated from all service providers? Do we have the infrastructure to allow institutions to broker access against a user-managed identity? Where will this be important? Who benefits, and where? Joint Information Systems Committee
  31. 31. So, OpenID? Important role to play in providing the infrastructure to allow us to move forward. Better than e-mail verification. Role for institutions as an OpenID provider? Links to ‘policy-lite’ approaches. Single digital identity very important. Great for people without an identity provider. Joint Information Systems Committee
  32. 32. What is JISC Doing? Full review of access and identity management against the Information Environment. Identity Project: reporting soon. Focus on current landscape within institutions. OpenID / external identity provision study to be commissioned. Identity Metasystems study to be commissioned. Personalisation study. E-Portfolio work: ULN?? Importance of links to repositories work. Users and Innovation Programme. Joint Information Systems Committee
