Unicon Sessions at Internet2 Member Meeting

Be sure to attend these sessions presented by Mike Grady, Senior Identity and Access Management Consultant at Unicon:

Multifactor Authentication (MFA) and Assurance BoF: Advantages of moving beyond passwords to MFA approaches

Passwords have served us well for a long time, but almost every day we read about compromised passwords and new attacks against them. Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) offers an increasingly attractive alternative, and MFA options and technologies continue to grow. MFA can and will play an important role in InCommon assurance profiles. Join the discussion and offer your experience and pose questions to your peers. Read more.

Toward a Scalable Approach to Privacy and Security

Privacy, security, data spills, compromised accounts – such are the headaches for IT architects, security officers, database administrators, and even network engineers. Development of a scalable privacy infrastructure would be a welcome addition to the campus network and identity infrastructure. Internet2 and InCommon have received a grant from the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace to develop technologies that will allow for both enterprise-wide tools and approaches to privacy and security, as well as user-controlled privacy management. This session will provide information on work this grant supports, including development of privacy management tools that can be deployed at scale, and successful deployment of multifactor authentication at a significant group of campuses across a wide set of population demographics.
