Conference Agenda

Open standards like HTTP, OAuth, and OpenID Connect allow competing organizations to add value to their services, platforms, and products by ensuring interoperability across commercial and government ecosystems.

 

Open standards can be a powerful tool set for developers.  But identity systems require rules that address liability as well as ensure technical conformance. This presentation is a pragmatic look at ensuring conformance to open standards via self-certification using the groundbreaking OpenID Certification Program as a case study. We’ll look at how technology tools like standards and self-certification can be fit for purpose with governance rules that define the business, legal and technical requirements of identity systems.

 

The presentation will provide an update on the OpenID Connect Financial-Grade API (FAPI) Profile and how certification of FAPI implementations will help drive the Open Banking initiative in the UK and potentially globally. The push is on to standardize open banking as financial services players have learned the lesson that collaboration is better than competition.  Given the success of the OpenID Connect standard, the OpenID Foundation’s Financial Grade API Working Group has stepped up to help drive this global interoperability initiative. The combination of open identity standards and open banking enables banks and new fintech players to compete with each other and other industries for the best customer experience. 

Key Takeaways:

 

1     A standard is only as good as its implementations.  The OpenID Foundation purposefully established a lightweight, low cost self-certification program to help ensure that high-quality OpenID Connect implementations became the norm in the marketplace. 

2     The push is on to standardize open banking as financial services players have learned the lesson that collaboration is better than competition. The combination of open identity standards and open banking enables banks and new fintech players to compete with each other and other industries for the best customer experience.

3     APIs allow participating entities to share data securely and easily while allowing customers to manage their information via any channel or application they choose, at any time. Self-certification of conformance to these standards is a key element to making this “just work”.
