SeamlessAccess Webinar

Understanding the Challenges around Where-Are-You-From (WAYF)

Moderated by: Hylke Koers, Chief Information Officer, STM Solutions

There are many ways to manage access to remote resources. From the use of IP addresses via VPN or proxy services to federated identity, the goal of enabling access to remote content is both easier and more complicated than ever before. While each access method has its own benefits and challenges, the user experience with federated identity becomes particularly complicated when an institution has more than one identity provider or otherwise shares a name with another institution.

In this webinar, we'll dive into understanding both the challenges involved in Where-Are-You-From (WAYF) services and the recommendations developed by the SeamlessAccess WAYF Disambiguation Working Group to mitigate those challenges.

We encourage you to read the problem description and recommendations on our website:
