E-Enterprise Federated Identity Management co-chairs Mary Montoya of the New Mexico Environment Department and Chuck Freeman of U.S. EPA are currently soliciting partners to join a new E-Enterprise governance group focused on identity management. The Federated Identity Management Governance Group is open to state, tribal and U.S. EPA officials (more information on qualifications below).
Potential members will possess the following qualifications:
- Available to contribute to biweekly meetings initially.
- Have a firm understanding of federated identity management concepts: “A network of enterprises (partners) allow users to choose from a set of Identity Providers for authentication that provides access to a set of trusted web resources (Relying Parties). Relying Parties are responsible for authorizing user roles to perform functions within the web resource.”
- Have a firm understanding of existing federated identity management models currently used such as: OpenID Connect, OpenID, OAuth, OASIS SAML, Windows Identity Framework. Active Directory experience alone is not adequate.
- Business Analysts, IT Managers, IT Application Architects or IT Security Policy Administrators with direct experience in identity management use cases at the browser tier, as well as at the cross-domain application to application tier.
If you are interested in joining the group or have questions, please contact Kristen Durance (kdurance@
