Managing Identities Is More Than Handing Out Cards
Since leaving Reno in 2018, ColorID has received a surprising number of requests from our university partners, for help with managing the identities of all the people on their campuses. For years, universities have printed and encoded ID cards, transmitted the data on those cards to several systems on campus, and handed them out to students and staff. The most pressing identity questions have centered around card technology, printer and reader choices, and when mobile IDs would be available. These are all important questions to resolve, but they are all about the credentials rather than the individual identities they represent.
Universities have relied on the capabilities of their one card systems to manage identities, which often lack enterprise level tools for handling role changes, temporary credential management, automated deprovisioning of credentials across all campus systems as well as central management for a variety of credential types
, including mobile, both present and future.
Effectively, decades of deferred maintenance of identity management have resulted in card activation delays, many manual processes for ID issuance and an inability to support innovative credential technologies.
New software products and services are available which provide comprehensive identity management, from identity vetting and document capture to distributed database provisioning according to centrally managed rules and policies. Self-service web portals for registering and deactivating credentials, web-based administrative GUIs, user-friendly report builders and robust analytics are some available features.
ColorID is looking forward to Hartford and continuing these conversations with our university partners. As always, we will be talking about card technology, mobile ID, and ID software and printers. There are a lot of new products to explore and many new questions about identity and credentials to discuss.
