The Identity Project addressed the current practice and future needs of UK academic institutions in Identity Management. The Identity Management issues which were investigated included Grid use, Shibboleth installations of varying degree of maturity, collaborative courses and other long term inter-institutional collaborations, internal and shared dynamic virtual organisations, classes of users other than standard staff/student mix, library access schemes, and NHS involvement.
The project Partners carried out the research in the area of Identity Management partly by accomplishing key packages with dedicated researchers, and partly by involving staff at each partner, who were familiar with local organisational structures and requirements.
This public web site was designed to exploit the closely interlinked nature of Identity Management requirements. It includes information about international efforts in the area and recommendations for future work, as well as outcomes of the research of the project partners.
The project started on 1 November 2006 and ended on 31 October 2007.
The project was funded under the JISC e-infrastructure programme.
