OARnet hosting national identity management "CAMP"

Jun 5, 2011





This summer, information technology professionals will need to travel only as far as OARnet's back door for practical guidance on federated identity management and interactive discussions with members of educational identity management communities from across the nation.

OARnet, as a co-host, is bringing to Ohio the national InCommon CAMP: Hot Topics in Identity and Federated Identity Management, June 21-23, 2011, at The Westin Columbus. This event is part of OARnet's ongoing Federated Identity program initiatives.

IT managers, policy and security staff, and technical implementers from the K20 community are encouraged to attend. The conference will be valuable for both those just getting started with identity management as well as those on the cutting edge.

This InCommon CAMP (Campus Architecture and Middleware Planning) will provide discussions and guidance on topics such as:

  • Community practices with affiliate and guest systems
  • Governance and policy for identity and access management
  • InCommon's Silver identity assurance profile
  • Recommended practices for federating in InCommon
  • Service providers: bringing new customers on board

Additional activities and content from nationally recognized experts will be announced later this spring.

Early registration is available through April 22. More information can be found here.
