02 - Identity Provider Discovery Usability

Andreas Åkre Solberg (UNINETT)

As Identity Federations are inter-connected, the problem of asking end-users to select which provider to use for login increase in complexity. The situation today, is that our current solutions with drop-down menus does not scale, and results in a bad user experience. We also see that many deployments results in multiple step discovery, which is not user-friendly as well.

With the introduction of DiscoJuice, GÉANT Identity Federations and UNINETT aim to solve most of the usability issues around Identity Provider Discovery Usability. DiscoJuice will be released in version 1.0 at TNC2011, and the solution will be presented in detail by Andreas Åkre Solberg on May 17th.
