I spent most of this week in Munich, at Kuppinger Cole’s European Identity Conference. This had again a full program with presentations and panels on digital identity, GRC and, of course, cloud. Some personal high-lights were presentations and panels on:
- externalization of authorization (XACML 3.0 won an identity award)
- privacy (including personal clouds/datastores, Qiy won an identity award)
- consumer identity/trust frameworks/OpenID (including an interesting presentation by Andrew Nash from Paypal).
- and mostly the off-sessions discussions with leading people in the digital identity area
I also had a presentation myself on consumer identity, and participated in panel. I presented my ideas on government issued consumer/citizin identities versus doing this through the market via an identity trust framework.
