Panel: Executive Directors Speak: Why We Need More Collaboration

Panel: Executive Directors Speak: Why We Need More Collaboration

Combined Session
Friday, June 07, 2024 14:30—15:30
Location: B 09

The puzzle of identity. How do we solve it? Collaboration! This panel of Executive Directors from the major identity foundations will discuss how each of our foundations are solving key pieces of the puzzle to make the vision of trusted, secure, privacy-respecting identity a reality.

We all have a common vision! To obtain and share trusted identity credentials to prove who we are to instantly, securely and seamlessly access services, both online and face-to-face, anywhere around the globe. Sounds easy, right? It’s really not!

We are building on an internet that was never intended to form trust between parties.

We have to build the technical tools, the policy and gain regulatory agreement to make this a reality.

We have to make sure we deliver ecosystems that interoperate, respect user’s rights and privacy, and are secure and will scale.

It’s a complex puzzle that requires collaboration to solve.

This Panel session hs been brought together by Judith Fleenor, Executive Director of the Trust Over IP Foundation
