Trust and Identity: ACAMP and CAMP at the 2014 Technology Exchange
The time is nigh for the 2014 Technology Exchange, October 26-30 in Indy. We're looking forward to the semi-annual gathering of the tribe to talk about the latest and greatest in identity and access management.
There will be a lot going on at TechEx, with ACAMP, two CAMP tracks (cleverly named 101 and 201), and three other tracks, too (security, cloud, and advanced networking). When you look at the detailed schedule on the web, you’ll see that these other tracks also have flavors of IAM scattered about.
Here's a quick overview of what you can expect, starting Monday morning, October 27.
Advance CAMP – Monday-Tuesday, Oct. 27-28
Advance CAMP focuses on the issues that leading identity architects and developers are working on, emphasizing community-wide topics (as opposed to campus case studies). ACAMP uses an unconference format, with agenda-setting taking place each morning at 8:30 am. Bring your topics to propose and join leading identity architects and developers to explore the state of the art in identity services. ACAMP will run all day Monday and Tuesday.
CAMP – Tuesday-Thursday, Oct. 28-30
CAMP features two tracks: CAMP 101 kicks off Tuesday afternoon and is intended for those new to identity management and/or new to federation, and the topics build on one-another. CAMP 201 includes U.S. and international case students on topics of interest to those with experience in federated identity management. You can find a complete list of CAMP 101 and 201 topics at the Trust and Identity track on the TechEx web.
CAMP 101 will feature four campus case studies on Thursday (Oct. 30) morning, starting at 9:15 am, as well as sessions on SAML and Shibboleth, and a recipe for policy and governance. CAMP 201 will focus on science and research collaboration on Thursday (Oct. 30) morning, with sessions at 9:15 and 10:30. There are also sessions on eduroam and an update from the Shibboleth Consortium.
Mark Bruhn, associate vice president for public safety and institutional assurance at Indiana University, will provide the Thursday morning keynote for both tracks, discussing identity, risk and privacy.
You will find other trust and identity sessions sprinkled among the other tracks, including:
- "What You Autha Know: Modern Multifactor in Higher Ed" (Tuesday, Oct. 28, 8:30 am)
