Learn about NCSU's initial journey towards a strictly cloud-based Single Sign-On (SSO) solution. ssue: North Country Supervisory Union (NCSU) is searching for a solution to provide its students and teachers with a secure and seamless user experience for accessing individual email accounts and a variety of web applications via their existing identity information. Discussion: Currently there are a large number of cloud-based applications available for classroom instruction in addition to applications for business functions and student management. Over the next five years the number of application options is expected to increase exponentially by a factor of five. As more cloud-based applications are introduced into classroom instruction, there is a need to manage student and teacher access without overburdening IT staff with endless account creation while protecting faculty and student Personally Identifiable Information(PII). Since vendors work within their own "Silo's," cooperation between vendors is not considered an option, and multiple account creation to access programs and applications is inevitable. Resolution: NCSU released a list of specifications in search of an independent identity management provider to assist in easing the burden of account provisioning and authentication. Identacor has partnered with NCSU to tackle this task utilizing industry standards such as SAML 2.0 and Shibboleth to create a cost effective solution for education.
