Social-to-SAML: Accepting Social Identities for InCommon Federated Services

Is your campus providing identity services to an ever-growing group of users: student applicants, parents, community 
members, continuing education enrollees, friends of the institution?  Some schools are using social identities (e.g., 
Google and Yahoo) to provide access to selected federated services, rather than creating university IDs for users who 
may have little or no continuing relationship with the institution.

This IAM Online will feature case studies for leveraging social identity, which allows people to log in through social 
identity providers and access certain protected campus resources. Attendees will also learn about a pilot 
Social-to-SAML gateway developed as part of the InCommon social identity working group and hosted by the University of 
Texas System.

Please plan to join us! You'll find more information about the presentation at 

Catherine Zabriskie, Director, Academic Technology Services, Brown University
Paul Caskey, Chief Technology Officer, University of Texas System
Jim Basney, Senior Research Scientist, National Center for Supercomputing Applications (operator of CILogon)

Host and Moderator: Steve Carmody, IT Architect, Brown University
