A Colorado State University e-Identity (eID) has a limited lifecycle. An eID can be created when a person has an active affiliation with CSU. People applying for admission to the university, active students, faculty, staff and associates are all considered members of the CSU community and are eligible to create an eID, which includes issuance of a CSU-provided email address. When a person is no longer affiliated with the University, eIDs enter an expiration cycle where the identity is active for a limited time and will eventually be disabled.
More and more, people outside of the defined CSU member population need access to a limited set of protected resources via the network and/or web. We have identified three application development activities as part of our overall campus success program project (University Advancement, Parent Access and Access to Records for Former Students).
