Pre-Conference Events

2012 brings new opportunities for identity services in the eGovernment and private markets.

Gain “state-of-identity” insights through a series of presentations of common scenarios from diverse market leaders. Join a host of industry experts for this pre-conference workshop to hear the latest on operational and technological approaches to Assurance compliance. This workshop will also touch on the developing NSTIC US strategy and its details with in context of a multi-national domain (EU Directives, etc).

This event will host 5 interactive session which will range from the highest level of overview, including a report from the Internet Society which will explain current ‘state of play’ and Mapping of the Identity Ecosystem, down to the technical detail of testing models to support Deployment Profile Interoperability verification and certification.  Our special guest from the New Zealand Government will focus on Assurance Operational and Technical compliance with special regard to eGovernment scenarios capturing feedback, which has been collected and analyzed from varying multi-national government representatives.  Finally the day will wrap up with a live demo from the very popular User Managed Access (UMA) project, which will show some UMA real-world implementations including: SMARTAM.org and Fraunhofer AISEC.

This event is positioned as a live and interactive discussion.  The presenters will report out and there will be plenty of time in each session for questions and feedback from the audience.  Our goal is to provide informative summaries from our experts.  But this is not only a ‘report out’ meeting.  We look forward to learning from the experiences and expertise in the audience as well.
