  •  TYPE: Track   DATES: May 15 - May 16, 2019
Conference Tracks

With the growing number and new vectors of cyber attacks, identity and access management is taking a center stage and is becoming a new defence outline. Furthermore, increased number of connected devices and employee mobility are making the job of cybersecurity professionals more difficult. In this context, only perimeter-based safeguarding measures are no longer meeting the security needs and implementation of adequate IAM and cybersecurity tools is necessary. Identity-based technologies like User Behavior Analtics can help in identifying anomalous behavior and detect internal and external threats. By utilizing a combination of already existing IAM, authentication and other technologies, Zero Trust security approach is also gaining popularity.

Blockchain Technology is promising solution for digital identities, enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain management and more. Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) makes Self Sovereign Identities (SSIs) possible, where individuals can keep control of their digital identity and share it whenever they want with whoever they want. Furthermore, it can help large companies in having better transparency and security. Blockchain as a Service is already gaining some traction. Several SSI concepts as well as number of commercial products are being offered on the market already. It remains to be seen how scalability, governance questions and future privacy regulations affect wider adoption of DLT.

Identity Is at the Center of Zero Trust, Not the Network

Panel: Placing Identity at the Center of Security Designs & Models
What does it mean to have identity at the center of your security infrastructure? At its core, it says that we have to build our solutions to always question who someone is, what they want to do. We can no longer blindly trust that just because they come from a known location those questions no longer matter. At the center of those questions is a critical concept: identity. At the center of those questions is one crucial idea: identity. Our solutions must continually validate the identity...

Self-Sovereign Identity - We've Had It for Thousands of Years. so What's New?

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Time: 11:00-12:00 Location: CHIEMSEE

Self-Sovereign Identity - We've Had It for Thousands of Years. so What's New?
Self-sovereign identity isn't new. It's just a new term. People having been carrying credentials around to prove who they are for thousands of years. When we entered the digital age, something weird happened. Our digital credentials became locked up inside databases owned by corporations and governments. We couldn't get at them, and instead had to get by with vastly inferior usernames and passwords.  Compared with physical passports, driving licenses or even business cards, today's...

An Identity Metasystem
In 2005, Kim Cameron proposed something called an identity metasystem that would serve as the infrastructure for the many context-specific identity systems we have. Such an identity metasystem would not only allow these various identity systems to interoperate but would, importantly, unify the user experience to ensure people were an integral part of the identity exchange and understood what was happening. Now, in 2019 we are on the verge of finally realizing this dream. This talk will talk...

We need the SMTP of identity that everyone can use, that is open and non-proprietary. This panel will be enlighten the audience about the development efforts that are under...

Why Governments are Still Important Even in a Self-Sovereign Context

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Time: 12:00-13:00 Location: CHIEMSEE

Why Governments are Still Important Even in a Self-Sovereign Context
It’s always been true that identity is more to do with what other people say about you than what you say about yourself. Placing the user in control of their online identity means that we need the ability to reference authoritative sources of data related to those individuals. If we are to build that user centric and much needed version of Digital Identity then Self-sovereign identity, and its more modest Self-managed form, will need the support of Governments and...

Do People Really Want to Be in Charge of Their Identity?
Shared Ledger Technology is increasingly mature, but remains a relatively under-deployed technology in the digital identity space. The emergence of self-sovereign identity approaches, underpinned and powered by shared ledgers, offer new and exciting solutions to establishing digital identities. As both technologies gain greater mainstream focus, will the combination of the two approaches unlock genuinely consumer-focused identity solution? Moving away from large centrally managed...
