I didn’t blog or even tweet much over the holidays, but I did manage to catch up on a few good posts and articles while lazing around…

- Identity Management on a Shoestring — An excellent report on how to implement IAM in an enterprise without spending years/millions. Uncanny resemblance to work I’ve been involved with in the past several years, i.e. customized implementations that are not constricted by the cost and complexity of COTS solutions.

- OASIS Identity in the Cloud Use Cases — A list of 29 use cases that are a solid reference for future IAM projects that involve cloud services. (HT to @RBsTweets.)
- Gov’t of Canada SecureKey page — A summary of SecureKey and the Canadian federal organization and legislation that supports its implementation. Would be nice to see a link to the PIA…
These should get your new year off to a good start – happy 2013 everyone!
