5.6 RA21: Resource Access for the 21st Century - Pilot Results and New Recommended Practices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Resource Access for the 21st Century (RA21) is a joint STM and National Information Standards Organization (NISO) initiative aimed at optimizing protocols across key stakeholder groups, with a goal of facilitating a seamless user experience for consumers of scientific communication. In addition, this comprehensive initiative is working to solve long-standing, complex, and broadly distributed challenges in the areas of network security and user privacy. RA21 development began following the report by the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) on the Authentication and Authorization Survey conducted in 2016.  The pilots: two technical academic and one corporate pilot are now complete. This session will share more information about these outcomes and the technology selected; the UX (user experience) refinements underway, and recommended practices. The RA21 team will also discuss output from its recent Security and Privacy report, and discuss next steps for the project: establishment of a multi-stakeholder governance model to take the recommendations forward.  Gradual implementation & adoption by publishers/institutes starts 2019.
