Internet Identity Workshop 10 Opening Talk – Looking at the History of the user-centric Identity community.

I spoke at Community 2.0, on Identity Across Communities – Tools for Making it Real. May 13, 2009 San Francisco, CA

This presentation will cover the core user-centric identity technologies that are emerging to support people being able to port their identifiers and information about themselves between websites. The goal is to make it easier for people to share information along with support the emergent social effects like trust that come from persistence across time and space and ultimately build stronger communities faster. The tools include OpenID, Open Social, Information Cards, The Relationship Button from Project VRM (Vendor Relationship Management).

I modified this same presentation for the Online Community Research Network phone presentation in August.

I spoke at the Oxford Internet Institute symposium on Global Legal and Policy Frameworks in Identity Management.

I facilitated a Peer 2 Peer session at the RSA security conference April 23,2009 10:40-11:30 on the topic Claims-Based Identity – What is the Business Case?

The user-centric identity community has been working on information cards an open standard for claims based identity architecture (as opposed to a network end-point architecture). The big question that arises is “what is the business case?” This session will be an open discussion around the existing and potential business models and cases for such a meta-system to emerge.

I facilitated a SXSW panel about OpenID, Oauth and the Enterprise with Joseph Smarr, Bob Blakley and Danny Kolke the CEO of Etelos.

The debate over identity, data and authentication is gaining ground in the social networking world. The more difficult discussion regarding enterprises and Web 2.0 has yet to start. Businesses realize that they must protect the data of their company, employees and customers. Join brave leaders from several Web Application companies that are beginning the discussion – Are OpenID and OAuth good for the enterprise?
