IG Federated Identity Management RDA 9th Plenary meeting

Meeting title

Federated Identity Management for Research – where are we now?

Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group: 

Federated Identity Management (FIM) is gaining ground in the authentication and authorization space for research collaborations. The ability for a user to log in to a resource with an identity from their home organization reduces the need for local accounts and provides a uniform login method for researchers across a range of services. 
In 2012, a group of research communities jointly wrote a whitepaper documenting their pre-requisites for wide scale adoption of FIM, and their recommendations for infrastructures, institutions and funding bodies. This paper, dubbed FIM4Rv1, strongly influenced the direction of FIM in academia. 5 years later, the opportunities offered by FIM (and the remaining challenges) have evolved. Once again, research collaborations are mobilizing to produce a second version of the whitepaper.
