Don’t Get Locked Out Federated Credetial Management (FedCM): Anticipating Changes to Browser Technology and Federated Authentication

To promote privacy, Google, Mozilla, and Apple are working to introduce features that prevent tracking of users across the web—and moving to a new system called Federated Credential Management (FedCM) to support federated access. In this session, we’ll talk about how these changes affect your institution’s current authentication system; how resource vendors are responding; and how SeamlessAccess—and through them, NISO—is advocating for support for the thousands of scholarly resource providers and contributing their expertise to make that happen. Ask questions and make suggestions. If we can’t address your concern in the session, we’ll make sure the Core Federated Authentication Committee gets details out to the community in future communications. The FA Committee web page has resources that provide an understanding of authentication technology from foundational to expert. This session follows up on the Committee’s session at ALA 2023 on privacy and federated access.
