Research Collaboration-Academia and Beyond
A hallmark of modern research is collaboration across organizations, from academia, to corporate enterprise, to government. Much of that collaboration happens via online platforms and services where security is paramount. Online resources can be protected by creating user accounts for all the research collaborators, but that creates time delays, user frustration, and security risk as researchers my write down password information for convenience.
Researchers already have identities from the universities and companies where they work, and/or via social identity providers like Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. Cirrus Identity's solutions make it easy for research collaboration platforms to integrate multiple external identity providers for user login. This way, faculty can log in with their university account, private researchers can log in with their company accounts, and others can log in with custom-federated identity providers or social identity providers.
