Introduction from Cirrus Identity CEO, Dedra Chamberlin:
One of the biggest pain points in Higher Education is the ridiculous number of user accounts High School students have to create when applying to college.

Cirrus Identity is excited to announce the release of an OAuth2 and OpenID Connect (OIDC)
authentication module for SimpleSAMLphp. This development was made possible with
sponsorship by the Big Ten Academic Alliance and technical support from the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

We are thrilled to announce that Mark Rank will be joining Cirrus Identity full-time. Mark is a veteran of higher ed identity, having spent many years at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee wrangling enterprise data and identity management systems. He left UWM to join the identity management team at UCSF, and most recently has served as a Business Analyst and Project Manager at Kaiser Permanente. Mark will serve as Cirrus Identity's Director of Product and Customer Success. There are so many hats Mark can wear, and the startup life will give him the chance to sport them all :-). Mark will officially join at the end of October, and will be attending both the Internet2 Technology Exchange and EDUCAUSE with the Cirrus Identity team.
We're happy that this year's Internet2 TechEx meeting is in our back yard! Here's what Cirrus Identity is up to at the conference:
