Workshop

Identity 2.0: Identity Protocols, Today and Tomorrow (Sponsored by Sxip Identity)
Dick Hardt, Founder and CEO, Sxip Identity

Date: Wednesday, October 5th, 2005
Time: 9:45am - 11:00am
Location: Franciscan I

With the increasing emergence of on-demand applications that rely on the simple and secure distribution of user data over the Internet, current federated identity models do not scale to meet these new business requirements. This interactive workshop explores a different model, Identity 2.0, that places users at the center of their identity transactions, instead of requiring them to rely on directory-centered, siloed identity management.

This model will be discussed in the context of past, present, and future IdM protocols. Hardt will start by establishing a definition of digital identity and examine how identity information is currently stored and transported on the Web. Then he'll review the lessons learned from the successes and failures of past identity protocol implementations.

Hardt will also look ahead to impending digital identity development needs, the evolution of standards and protocols, and realistic expectations for Identity 2.0 in the near and distant future. This will be a lively debate!
