Session Type: Professional Development
Federations provide the trust framework, common definitions, and standards-based transport mechanisms for sharing information about our constituents with other institutions. But what does this really mean to those responsible for providing student services? This session will address basic concepts of federations and federating of identities and conclude with case studies of using this approach as a solution for access to the National Student Clearinghouse and other business partner services.
