Plowing the field l.jpg

Plowing the field

  • Why is HEBCA still only in test mode of operation?

    • Demand is not there yet from multiple schools (NOTE: Texas is an exception in this regards)

    • Anecdotally there is higher interest in PKI from schools than ever before but this interest is mostly focused on introspective projects rather than those that require cross-boundary authentication – some caveats do exist

    • An exception to the above is the Federal government as the external campus entity – there is a lot of interest in what the feds are doing and what that means for campuses

    • By the feds own admission – 75% of their applications that are the focus of the eAuthentication “federation” are assertion based – there are not many higher level applications out there

Planting seeds

  • What are the drivers being manifest

    • Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the US, higher education is the primary target (43% of reported incidents occurred in our sector)

    • Stronger binding and stronger technologies for IDM, better access controls, and security services are being investigated

    • There are lots of small internal PKI pilots quietly going about their business – looking to grow organically

    • Federation is required for bridging PKI – but the main thrust (in terms of advertising and focus) for federations has been in the assertion based arena – notably shibboleth – this both a catalyst and a crutch
