Ready for any PSD with an Open Finance Architecture
After painfully figuring out, adopting and stabilizing PSD2, PSD3 is already right at the corner. It's going beyond forcing banks to provide access to Third Party Providers to customer transactions and payment initiations with the customer's consent. The main challenge for banks is not the implementation, but capturing business opportunities around those regulations rather than seeing them as constraints. In this talk, I will describe an Open Finance architecture which allows:...

The Gap in the Current Identity World for Non-Human Identities Which Act as Humans!
Non-human identities are getting more and more important. IAM has the challenge to manage them with the same standards as human identities. Over the last years many tools and best practices have been developed to improve the situation. However, the more those identities mimic behavior of humans the harder current concepts work without reducing security and governance. An example is Robot Process Automation (RPA), which aims to automate processes done by humans, often for application which do...

Multilateral Federation: The Solution to the Problem that Identity Wallets Don’t yet Understand They Have
SAML and OpenID started with a simple model of bilateral trust. Relying Parties register with Identity Providers and exchange trust information so that the RP can know that they are talking to Microsoft, Google, Facebook etc. We have also had Smart Cards (PIV/CAC) for authentication based on a certificate signed by someone that chains back to a known trusted root. The smart card approach avoids the RP needing to register but has significant user privacy issues. The research and education...

Federation Bubbles
Traditional federation agreements are relatively static. It takes some effort to onboard an IdP and RP to each other, but once that trust is established, it's good until some exceptional event breaks the federation. But what about a more dynamic world, one where trust comes and goes based on context? What if users could be provisioned dynamically into a space based on trust from elsewhere? What if an isolated space could still function in a disconnected state and still have powerful security...
