SakaiCon Recap

Sitting on a flight, returning from the Sakai conference — still trying to take everything in. There’ll probably be more musing on the significance of specific items coming up, but things that struck me enough to want to brain dump were: * There was wide consensus during the planning sessions that there’s a desire to ...

Blackboard Is Losing Customers, but What Does It Mean? at e-Literate

Blackboard Is Losing Customers, but What Does It Mean? at e-Literate “The big loss appears to be unambiguously in Blackboard Basic licenses. One factor that theoretically might have contributed to this loss is consolidation of Basic licenses under a consortial Enterprise license. In this case, the loss of a license wouldn’t equal the loss of ...

JA-SIG Conference: Future of Identity Management in HigherEd

Jens’s talk is focusing on Identity Management where he’s focusing on life-cycle of identity data. Looks like the talk is going to focus on moving towards user-centered identity.”Access to the right resources, to the right users, at the right time” — focused on providing, not preventing access (e.g. from a security perspective). Authentication vs. Authorization ...

JA-SIG Conference: Unconference Planning

Thinking about things to do for the new JA-SIG. Some talk on various topics related to un-conferences, and other bits. There was actually a lot of interesting discussion about regional conferences, video meetings, un-conferences, events focused on collaborating on whitepages, etc. I’ll updated with an audio transcript… uhhh… when I get a chance…

JA-SIG Conference: Building Portable Portlets

Chuck is talking a bit more about his experience with portlets, and the implications for uPortal, Sakai, etc. Sakai portlet notes: * Preferences – site.upd to change * Edit Mode – site.upd again * `isUserInRole()` mapped to Sakai permissions site.upd, content.read, etc. The `isUserInRole()` mapping seems a little counter-intuitive — seems like really portlet.xml should ...

JA-SIG Conference: Phil Windley Digital Identity Keynote

Listening to Phil’s keynote. Will be trying to post video and audio at some point — in the meantime, there’s a good thread about reputation and privacy. *Update:* Posted very rough audio recording of the keynote, also available as part of the podcast.

ongoing · OpenID at Work

ongoing · OpenID at Work – This caused a GIGANTIC thread on the identity-gang list that got back to the question of implicit authorization off of an authentication source. I know when I was looking at Rutgers IdM infrastructure, assumptions about what having a credential meant was a serious barrier to then expanding issuing of ...

OpenEAI

OpenEAI is about integration, out of U. Illinois, open source. Sample enterprise (reference model) with gateways to link applications into the bus and serices provided by the bus. Some of the functions (authoritative user accounts, finding names) sound very IDM like. The sample enterprise has a quickstart-like distribution that can run all of the services ...

Rutgers IdM Assessment

We released the Rutgers Identity Management Assessment today. It ended up being 65+ pages, but I think we did a pretty good job of incorporating both the inventory side, as well as some observations in our needs and capabilities. One thing that was interesting in the end was the timing and personalities. 2 months was ...
