Identity and Claims Brokers

  • TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 12, 2011 TIME: 10:30-11:30 LOCATION: Ammersee I


Large scale deployments of consumer identity are under way. However, it is impossible for Internet Service providers, e-commerce merchants and other relying parties to deal with large numbers of identity providers. Likewise, consumers need an advocate who will create simple policies and enable management of their information. Finally, many holders of consumer information supporting claims, have no way to effectively utilize this information or provide consumers insight into what is known about them.

This presentation looks at the emerging role of consumer identity and claims brokers. Brokers will be a significant ecosystem enabler in successful consumer identitiy ecosystems. We will examine current limitations on claims based models and some ways that these can be addressed. Finally, the role of brokers interacting with Government Electronic Identity systems will be discussed showing how each can be leveraged for more effective support of consumer identities.
