InAcademia uses identity data that universities and research institutions provide about their users. How can one be sure this data is accurate and up-to-date? The answer is that the identity data used by InAcademia comes directly from the organisation’s internal identity management system. This data therefore is also used by the organisation itself to perform access control (e.g. to access organisation’s HR systems) and authorisation (e.g. to allow students to review their grades). Because the same identity and affiliation data is used by InAcademia as well as the organisation that provides it, it’s in an organisations very own interest to keep data up-to-date and accurate.
