In the "Building Interoperable Ecosystems" session stream, attendees will dive into a comprehensive exploration of the challenges and strategies in creating cohesive, interoperable digital identity frameworks. This session stream is dedicated to reduce complexities of integrating diverse digital identity systems, ensuring they work seamlessly across various platforms, sectors, and borders. Dr. Jones will guide discussions that dissect the technological, regulatory, and practical aspects of building digital ID ecosystems that are not only secure and user-friendly but also universally compatible. The session will address the pivotal role of standards in achieving interoperability, exploring how these frameworks can foster trust, enhance user experience, and facilitate global digital transactions and interactions.

The DNA of Digital ID – Enabling Roaming Wallets
OIX has analysed eight Digital ID trust frameworks: US, Canada, EU, UK, Singapore, Thailand, MOSIP and Bank ID Sweden. The goal was to see if their policies could be expressed in a consistent way to enable interoperability of IDs across these eco-systems. The analysis found they share 75 common policy rule characteristics with 283 possible values. This is the DNA of Digital ID: trust frameworks are the same species but address the policy issues using a varied characteristics to meet local...

The Global Interoperability of Digital Identity
As more governments promote online access and issue digital identity credentials for their populations, questions arise regarding just how portable those credentials are from one country to the next. While the EU has the benefit of eIDAS 2.0, other countries and regions still struggle with how to take advantage of digital identity credentials issued outside their borders. The challenges go beyond technical standards: it's not just about the structure of the data, it's also about how that data...

Multilateral Federation: The Solution to the Problem that Identity Wallets Don’t yet Understand They Have
SAML and OpenID started with a simple model of bilateral trust. Relying Parties register with Identity Providers and exchange trust information so that the RP can know that they are talking to Microsoft, Google, Facebook etc. We have also had Smart Cards (PIV/CAC) for authentication based on a certificate signed by someone that chains back to a known trusted root. The smart card approach avoids the RP needing to register but has significant user privacy issues. The research and education...

Federation Bubbles
Traditional federation agreements are relatively static. It takes some effort to onboard an IdP and RP to each other, but once that trust is established, it's good until some exceptional event breaks the federation. But what about a more dynamic world, one where trust comes and goes based on context? What if users could be provisioned dynamically into a space based on trust from elsewhere? What if an isolated space could still function in a disconnected state and still have powerful security...

High-security & Interoperable OAuth 2: What’s the Latest?
OAuth is a widely used authorization framework that enables third-party applications to access resources on behalf of a user. However, it has historically been difficult to meet very high security and interoperability requirements when using OAuth. Daniel and Joseph have spent much of the last six years working to improve the state of the art and will present the latest developments in the field. There are challenges when trying to achieve high security and interoperability with OAuth 2:...
