Workshop Agenda

12:30-12:35Welcome Gail Hodges – OIDF
12:35-1:00OIDF Privacy Whitepaper Listening Session: “Help Design a Scalable Future for Personal Privacy” Government-issued digital IDs have the potential for amazing societal impact but getting there from here means bridging the gaps in identity validation, verification, privacy, and control. In this session, we offer an open conversation to gather different perspectives on how policies and protocols need to evolve to help government-issued IDs fill their role in a global privacy-preserving infrastructure. Come join us to be a part of thinking outside the box of today so we can achieve tomorrow’s promise of government-issued IDs as a benefit to all.Heather Flanagan – Spherical Cow Consulting
1:00-1:25OIDF Government Whitepaper Listening Session: “Citizen-Centric Identity Systems” The OpenID Foundation is developing a whitepaper for governments and their associated stakeholders with the goal of supporting them in making good decisions when implementing citizen-centric digital identity systems – and to help them understand where OIDC and its extensions fit in. This session will be a facilitated discussion about the key concerns of government when thinking about digital identity:
  • The Role of Government
  • Key Stakeholders
  • Adoption
  • Balancing privacy/security/trust
  • Resilience
  • Economic Benefits
  • Technology and Interoperability
  • How existing standards fit in
Elizabeth Garber – Whitepaper Co-Author
1:25-1:50OIDF IoT Whitepaper Listening Session: “IoT & Identity: First Thoughts on a Blueprint for How People and Things can Interoperate Most enterprises implementing use cases with connected devices follow proprietary approaches when interacting with people. This results in challenges when it comes to integrating different systems but also adds risk from a security perspective, efforts from a development perspective, and inconsistency from an end-user perspective. A blueprint for how people and things can interoperate has to outline ideas, paradigms, and enhancements to existing standards to provide guidance to architects, developers, and product owners. In this session, you’ll get insights into early thoughts on that topic, hear about challenges leading enterprises in this segment have today, and are invited to share your opinion, ideas, and concerns regarding IoT and Identity.Andre Priebe – iC Consult
