Identity and Access Management
August, 2022 At Unicon, I have been fortunate enough to work on all kinds of different projects. As an education consultancy, we help our clients solve their most complex and challenging problems. From K-12, Higher Education, to Education Technology companies, we help clients with a wide spectrum of solutions ranging from integration, to content development or hosting, and operations.
January, 2022 Is your organization using open source applications such as CAS, Shibboleth, Grouper, midPoint or uPortal? Educational institutions use open source software as an alternative to proprietary software for the superior control, choices, and the economics that it provides.
June, 2021 CAS server has provided several distributed Ticket Registry implementations out of the box for a long time now, the most popular being Hazelcast.

May, 2021 Identity and access management (IAM) engineers are in high demand. We often hear from customers that the one key person who was knowledgeable about their IAM solution and future needs has moved on to another position leaving the current staff with a gap in knowledge, expertise, and next steps.
March, 2021 InCommon is a widely used federation in Higher Education. They have recently created the Metadata Distribution Query service and protocol (MDQ). The benefits of this new service are numerous. At Unicon we’ve seen clients experience half the memory usage in popular open source Single Sign On applications such as Shibboleth Identity Provider and Apereo CAS server after switching.
