Subtopics are:
Enterprise PKI in combination with strong authentication has become best practice in organizations that need to protect their electronic assets. On the other hand, the public browser PKI has been proven untrustworthy to communicate outside the enterprise. This focus topic addresses the gap between those two worlds, highlighting the status quo, architectures, standards and solutions that facilitate PKI-based, high-assurance collaboration between enterprises and their customers and partners.
Federation Protocols and Interoperability in B2B and B2C
Identity federation has been thriving in certain vertical domains and is increasingly arriving in various industry sectors to support ever more business processes. Organizations have to choose from different functions, architectures and protocols; available as cloud service, drop-in solution or toolkits. This topic is for you if SAML, OAUTH, OpenID Connect, WS-Fed, SCIM, SPML should match with authentication and provisioning processes in a multi-party context.
Privacy and Identity
While “better” identities like Facebook’s real names or government issued eIDs relieve certain security threats, they are against certain privacy principles and result in a shifted risk equation. What are the positions, options and best practices for actors in this ecosystem, joining different jurisdictions across the Internet?
Each subtopic is covered in a keynote.
