    1. Introduction to Grouper

    2. Grouper story • Open source, community-driven project of the Internet2 Middleware Initiative • Initial release v0.5 in December 2004 • Grouper originally focused on robust management of groups, emphasizing: • Delegation and distributed management • Integration with most any existing IdM infrastructure. See case studies and campus contributions at: • • Grouper v2.0 provides broader set of access management capabilities, including roles & permissions • Released 6 September 2011

    3. Access management is a process:making authZ more than authN • Start out using a single user attribute, affiliation, in LDAP or AD to let applications implement access policies • Enrich centralized access management using groups determined from systems of record • Courses, financial accounts, departments • Define service specific access policies in central IAM system • Get central IT out of the loop • Distributed management • Exceptions • Departmental apps • Increase integration of access management • Direct application integration with web services • ESB/SOA, REST/SOAP • Roles & privileges to support applications more deeply
