Introductions Who we are Who you are Topics for Today What’s the Problem? Stories from the Field Profiles Overview and Gap Analysis Profiles to Practice: Business and Technical Implementation Considerations and Sample Timeline Resources to Help You
What’s the Problem and Why Should You be Worrying?
Deloitte Predictions 2013 Passwords==bad Strong? 5 hours to crack Phishing Bad habits Same pwd - multiple sites Online sources of cracked passwords Cell encouraging numbers-only Bad practices Yahoo recycling email addresses Sample Articles Sample Articles
Is This a Case for Multifactor? What questions should we be asking? How can I address phishing? How can I protect against inappropriate reassignment? How can I ensure the right physical person is using that password? InCommon’s Identity Assurance Framework and Profiles provides a step-wise and standards-based way to address these questions
Components of Assurance 6 RiskAssurance component that mitigates Fraudulently obtained Identity proofing + credential management Vetting process, Subject attributes, record keeping Inappropriate reassignment Credential management Token issuance & revocation, binding of Token to Subject, secure infrastructure, record keeping Stolen or shared Token technologies Additional factors (biometric, geolocation,...) Multi-factor (PIN + token) Second factor (OTP, “phone factor”, 2 nd password) Password/passphrase Effort to mitigate
Providing Credentials for your Credentials 2004: USG defines 4 Levels of Assurance (NIST 800-63) 2009: USG Identity, Credential and Access Management (ICAM) Certifies trust frameworks to interact with the USG agencies Determines comparability with 800-63 2011: InCommon ICAM Trust Provider Higher Ed developed, USG approved Bronze comparable to NIST LoA 1 Silver comparable to NIST LoA 2
Stronger Authentication at UCB –Adopt Me Please? ●IAM Systems review – Burton report ●Pre-InCommon Assurance and campus data classification ●Still a perceived need to “tighten” assurance ●Finding a cost-effective solution
CAS Second-Level Authentication ●Much easier and less expensive to deploy than two-factor ●Developed as contribution to existing CAS open source initiative ●User to supply a second “secret” for sensitive apps ●CAS Second Level OverviewCAS Second Level Overview ●One line code change for apps already integrated with CAS
Adoption, or not… ●Adoption Round 1 – It’s the right thing to do ●Adoption Round 2 – You have to do it ●The bet
UC Trust Compliance and InCommon Silver ●UC Trust Federation - Basic Assurance ●Decision to convert to InC Silver ●System-wide gap analysisSystem-wide gap analysis ●System-wide HR replacement ●Still no decision - likely deferred ●How to prioritize and align resources?
03/08/2012 17 It’s All About Identity Assurance Assurance a positive declaration intended to give confidence; a promise Identity Assurance the ability for a party to determine, with some level of certainty, that an electronic credential representing a person can be trusted to actually belong to the person.

InCommon Bronze: Common Sense Assign Responsibility for IdM Establish Policy for IdM Harden Password Management Harden Credential Technology Infrastructure Optional Compliance: Perform Self Assessment
A Note on Compliance Using Profiles is free, downloading is free Compliance will be required when federating with US Government Other InCommon Service Providers requesting an InCommon Profile Pros Published on Federal and InCommon website Shows good practice to your service providers Bronze is free; Silver is good biz practice Con Due diligence – more work Silver requires audit and fee to be certified

Find the Gaps ●Review the IAP table ●Where are you likely to find gaps? ●Business process, documentation ●Credential management ●Who needs to help fill them? ●Systems of Record representatives, Service Desk ●Central IT – security, credential managers systems teams ●When should you engage them? ●Estimating resources and timelines – sample gap analysis chart
Business Process Considerations ●On-boarding and the IdPO ID proofing and bootstrapping the digital credential HR, delegated admins or both The “CalNet Deputy” model and CalNet Deputy Training“CalNet Deputy” CalNet Deputy Training ●Remote proofing ●Re-issuance ●Security questions? ●User education and awareness
