A next generation federated identity management solution for a regional ecosystem of media providers (Media ID)


The project’s goal is to enable the Flemish media companies to extend and better support their relation with their customers in order to service them in a better way. The Media ID project will incept, evaluate and extend an open federated identity and access management solution and proof-of-concept dedicated to a contemporary media ecosystem that is characterised by multiple actors and stakeholders.

Applied research will iteratively and incrementally build up advanced deployment know-how on how to provide a common entry point for authentication of the consumers with federation support for authorisation and access, as well as integration capabilities with media provider assets.

The Media ID project will explore QoS and SLA requirements and analyze the feasibility of new enabling technologies for future media. It will investigate privacy concerns and compliance with existing and future Belgian and European legislation, as well as new business models and the user adoption potential through user acceptance studies. The Media ID proof-of-concept will be valorised through a versatile set of business use cases and media services from the industry.
