Trusted Authentication to OhioLINK
IAM Ohio provides secure, federated access to OhioLINK, the Ohio Library and Information Network and its member libraries.
Trusted Identity uses federation and single sign-on as a flexible foundation for research and academics. Specific collaboration activities within the IAMOhio program include:
SERVICE CATALOG DEVELOPMENT
The Federated Service Catalog is a database of the available services from members which support trusted login, including the type of service, who made it available, its purpose, attributes, and administrative and technical contact information. Initial draft services include:
Design and planning of federation structure and schema for an operationalized Trusted Identity Network. This includes choice of models, development of requirements, and alignment with external trust federations.
IMPLEMENTATION & BEST PRACTICES
