Scire Propter agere: knowing how to act, Modern identity management in education.

Unique user identity as foundation for secure access management for digital education portals.

The world we live in and the way we live, work, and learn is changing rapidly. Knowledge which was elementary yesterday may be outdated today. Digitalisation in education offers the chance for ” boundless” learning and teaching.

This means cybercrime is also appealing. As a result, the number of attacks has risen significantly in recent years. The creativity of criminals seems to be limitless.

The key lies in intelligent identity and access management with secure interfaces (APIs) and unique user identities. It strengthens security and GDPR compliance at universities and colleges. A clear regulation and control of roles and rights defines who can access what content and when.

The modern on-boarding of students, teachers, and employees instead of time-consuming creation

On-boarding of students, faculty and staff takes place in many different systems, which means a long time and a lot of effort for the responsible employees. It means there are currently different user accounts via the various established systems. Thus, teachers, students and staff have to remember several username/password combinations. Also, the offline access causes a higher effort. Integrate cidaas into your systems quickly, easily, and step-by-step through the standards OpenID Connect, OAuth2 and SAML2.0. cidaas allows you to create a central identity across all channels. Enable single sign-on for students, staff and faculty and use cidaas to provide modern and strong authentication methods such as TouchID, WebAuthn and one-time passwords.

Flexible authorization management - the digital world requires dynamic access management with groups and roles

The world is moving away from the hierarchical structure to groups – and so are the permissions

Universities and colleges are divided into faculties. Through delegated admins, a variety of tasks can be handed over to the individual heads and responsible people in the faculties, such as adding users, or assigning roles and permissions for teachers, lecturers, and staff. In addition, they also work together in courses in flexible teams and working groups. Professors can independently divide their students into groups and assign permissions for a dynamic team.
