The past few years have seen a starting increase in decentralized technologies for Digital Identities. So far, much of their adoption has been limited to academic or proof-of-concept integrations (barring some shining examples) rather than consolidated production-ready use cases.
Generally, there isn't an enforced link between real-world and digital identities, and rightfully so. Still, enterprises' policies and regulations mandate companies to ensure restricted access to reserved data and undeniable attribution, which collides with general anonymity and distributed principles. Albeit SSI technologies aim at filling this gap with trusted-yet-privacy-preserving solutions, companies still need to consolidate digital identities and collapse them into a well-defined entity. We will talk about a hybrid approach to classic IAM for workforce management including W3C native credential integration with solidified and well-established SSO federations. In other words, delegate to the end users the choice of which identity technology to use as long as they can provide a trust chain that the companies can verify.
In this session, Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole Analysts look at the potential of utilizing DID approaches within the enterprise. He will explain the potential and look at how this will impact existing technologies such as IGA, PAM, and Access Management, and how this relates to other trends such as WfA, BYOD, Policy-based Access, and more. He also will outline where interoperability and standards must further evolve to enable organizations in re-inventing their IAM, without ripping everything apart.
Decentralized Identity is about to change the way we do IAM in enterprises. It is not just about the C-identities (consumers, customers, citizens). This raises two questions: What do to differently in IAM, to leverage the potential of decentralized identities? And what not to do anymore, because it is becoming legacy? IAM, without any doubt, will change fundamentally. But is it about rip-and-replace of IAM and in particular IGA, or about complementing it? In this panel, we dive into this decentralized lake of innovation, new standards, products, vendors and start-ups in order to find out how to benefit from DIDs in the enterprise.
Are there interoperability models and how could a longer-term migration scenario look like? What about Identity Workflow Orchestration? Join this great panel session to discuss the way forward for workforce identity.
