European Workshop on Trust & Identity

In cooperation with GeantLogo184x80

The Scalable Identity Landscape

Abstract

The identity landscape has never been as fractured as it is today. Not since the days of the 80s protocol wars have we seen a comparable set of competing technologies for doing one and the same thing: identify and establish trust in user identities.

I this short presentation I will present an overview of the current identity landscape focusing on the roles of interoperability and scalability as key to successfully choosing and deploying identity technology.
