Standards Based Identity at Scale
- TYPE: Roundtable DATE: Wednesday, May 14, 2014 TIME: 14:30-16:30 LOCATION: BODENSEE I
The ability to access information anywhere and anytime changes the way people engage, communicate and interact with each other. Personal information sharing is an emerging trend for online personal life activities and this trend is called the Life Management Platform (LMP). With LMP, individuals interact with other people, institutions, agencies, private companies and organisations in order to get access to specific services such as car insurance, loans, healthcare, or public services, among many others. The LMP model, similarly to other concepts like Personal Cloud or Personal Data Stores, encourages the individual to be in control of their own data, and aims to provide a mechanism that allows individuals to meet privacy and security requirements, either those imposed by themselves or other authorities.
User-Managed Access (UMA) is a technology that provides an unique solution to central management of protecting and sharing distributed resources owned by an individual. It fits precisely to the Life Management Platform model. The UMA proposal can be used to manage secure information sharing with explicit consent of the individual and also to support the policy definition for requests for information from other interested parties. Furthermore, UMA allows to provide sophisticated audit tools for control and visibility of the shared data, which satisfies the Privacy By Design principles.
This presentation will provide a detailed description of the UMA proposal, its architecture, protocol and the trust model. We will also show the benefits of UMA that can be applied to various LMP scenarios as well as a demo session related to a personal information sharing scenario.
Kuppinger Cole has predicted that Life Management Platforms will be one of the most important developments in Internet infrastructure this decade. In this panel, Respect Network co-founder and CEO Drummond Reed will be joined by executives of several Founding Partners of the Respect Network to discuss the 2014 launch of this new global private network. The panel will cover the technical, legal, and business foundation of the Respect Network, the 2014 launch schedule, the first apps that will be released for the network (including the new version of Connect.Me, honored with the Privacy Award at the 2011 European Identity Conference), the early use cases and value propositions for business members of the network, and growth plans through 2015 and beyond.
What is the result, if we merge the concept of Life Management Platforms with social networks, secure transactions, communication and information sharing? Yes, the result is a complete digital representation of social interaction like we humans have been developing in thousands of years, with by the way not so much change. Now that the Internet of Everything is coming along with technologies to provide secure frameworks which let us be represented by robot-like "software defined identities", Vladimir Samokhvalov founded MetaSociety to create the next generation of Social Interaction System (SIS). He will describe his concept together with Martin Kuppinger and open the discussion on his proposal.
