Identity and access management, particularly in a federated environment, enables so much: engaging in international research and collaboration, supporting secure access to online materials, and allowing for a greater control over user privacy. This talk will look at the benefits, and challenges, of enabling federated identity in an academic setting, and offer insight into how other regions of the world are taking advantage of federated services to improve local digital service offerings within their communities.
