Day 3 - Tuesday 13

Aim of the one-day event on Identity Management is to provide the knowledge and the know-how to set-up identity management systems (IdMS) for authentication and authorisation. The attendees will be provided with IdM definitions and concepts, will be explained how to store information into directories and will be introduced to the LDAP protocol.

The electronic organisation of the users' identities in the campuses has been and still remains one of the most challenging tasks. With the increasing demand to provide on-line access to resources for their constituency, campuses need to think of a proper Identity Management System to allow on-line access without affecting security.
