ITT: Review of identity metasystems

JISC wishes to fund a study into Identity Metasystems. The study should examine the potential of  Identity Metasystems, with the following aims:

  • Identify key stakeholders from further and higher education who cover the areas of e-research, e-learning, repositories and libraries, third stream activity and social software.  Gaining a suitably diverse and representative group of stakeholders is likely to prove difficult so bidders should outline how they intend to approach this
  • Conduct structured interviews and surveys with these key stakeholders to establish the main scenarios for an identity metasystem and potential opportunities
  • Where appropriate, map the outputs from above into the e-Framework
  • Evaluate the applicability of existing identity metasystems against the scenarios identified above
  • Establish the maturity of identity metasystems, particularly some criteria to determine when it would be appropriate to start pilot implementation projects
  • Evaluate how identity metasystems would fit with existing authentication and authorisation systems already in use, such as eScience certificates and the UK Access Management Federation
  • Provide an overview of platform support and availability of libraries, open source toolkits etc
  • Compose a report summarising the findings from the above and proposing recommended next steps, if these are appropriate.

A total of up to £50,000 is available for this project, inclusive of VAT and all expenses. The project will be for 6 months beginning in December 2007.
