Are You Supporting Research & Scholarship?
We've heard from a number of identity providers that are supporting the Research & Scholarship category by releasing the appropriate attributes. Releasing attributes to the category means better scalability and easier collaborations for your faculty and other researchers.
CILogon Support: If you operate an identity provider that already supports CILogon, a one-line change to your IdP configuration will allow you to support all Research & Scholarship category service providers.
Leveraging a Phone for Password Reset
Tom Scavo, InCommon's operations manager, continues his discussion about mobile-based two-factor authentication, and a password reset strategy that leverages a privileged phone.

AcademicWorks allows colleges, universities, and foundations to efficiently match students with relevant scholarship and grant opportunities, manage renewable awards, and recognize scholarship donors. Our web-based software can integrate with your campus's student information system (e.g., PeopleSoft, Banner, Datatel) to import student records daily and automatically update student eligibility based on both student provided and imported information. Now, through our sponsorship by CSU-Fresno, AcademicWorks can implement a federated Single Sign-On integration to allow administrators and students to access their scholarship information using campus credentials.
