Heather Flanagan

Program Director for SeamlessAccess
Heather Flanagan, Program Director for SeamlessAccess Principal at Spherical Cow Consulting, comes from a position that the Internet is led by people, powered by words, and inspired by technology. She has been involved in leadership roles with some of the most technical, volunteer-driven organizations on the Internet, including IDPro as Principal Editor, the IETF, the IAB, and the IRTF as RFC Series Editor, ICANN as Technical Writer, and REFEDS as Coordinator, just to name a few. If there is work going on to develop new Internet standards, or discussions around the future of digital identity, she is interested in engaging in that work.

The SeamlessAccess Entity Categories and Attribute Bundles Working Group brought together 22 individuals from around the world and across different sectors to define and promote the categorization of different levels of attribute release profiles (commonly known as entity categories) associated with federated access to scholarly information resources. The group has proposed three separate categories: Authentication Only, Anonymous Authorization, and Pseudonymous Authorization. The goal is to have these categorizations and profiles adopted and/or endorsed by global research and education federations, library communities, and other stakeholder groups. This webinar will review each of these entity categories with a goal of encouraging informed feedback from the community during the public consultation period.
