Multifactor Authentication, Assurance, and the Multi-Context Broker

Is your campus considering the implementation of multifactor authentication to bolster security beyond passwords? Are you considering implementing multiple local or InCommon Assurance profiles? If so, and you use Shibboleth single sign-on software, your job just got easier. Join us for this IAM Online to hear about the needs for multifactor authentication and assurance at two universities, and how those needs are met by the new Multi-Context Broker.

With partial funding from the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), the Internet2 and InCommon communities have released the Multi-Context Broker, an extension to the Shibboleth software that makes it easier for your organization to support the increasing demand for multifactor authentication and identity assurance, while simplifying the user experience.

See this wiki page for more information about the Multi-Context Broker:

David Walker, InCommon Technical Advisory Committee

Keith Wessel, Identity Management Service Manager, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

David Langenberg, Senior Systems Programmer, University of Chicago

We use Adobe Connect for slide sharing and audio: For more details, including back-up phone bridge information, see
