Identity Management 2009 | Call for Presentations Now Open

http://events.oasis-open.org/home/forum/2009

OASIS is pleased to announce that NIST will be hosting this year’s event at their http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/maps/nistmaps.html!

 

Proposal Deadline:  10 July 2009

 

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Barack Obama has directed the U.S. National Security Council and Homeland Security Council "to defend our information and communications infrastructure, strengthen public/private partnerships, invest in cutting edge research and development and to begin a national campaign to promote cyber-security awareness and digital literacy." The U.S. federal government aims to accomplish all of this while becoming increasingly open and transparent.

 

President Obama also vowed not to dictate security standards to private companies and not to monitor private sector networks or Internet traffic, promising to "preserve and protect personal privacy and civil liberties."

 

How do we balance open access, transparency and accountability with security and privacy?

 

As national and international governments endeavor to manage citizen's identities while providing open, transparent and trusted services, the challenges of managing identities and access to information on such huge scales require careful planning, a strong policy focus, and attention to standards and interoperability.

 

Identity Management 2009 will provide users who are evaluating or looking to deploy such security infrastructures with an opportunity to explore the state of the art in security services, standards and products. It will also provide users with an opportunity to present and share their use cases, requirements and (initial) experience with other users and with some of the leading experts in this field.

OASIS invites proposals for presentations and panel sessions related to the security challenges in managing identities and access to information on large scales.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Information Cards/OpenID/SAML. How can these standards enable more secure access to sensitive and personal information across government agencies and with third party-sites supporting government operations?

  • Social Media. What are the security risks to agencies that plan to use and support these new, publicly available, previously unimaginable technologies and services?  How to share information about security incidents and best practice.

  • Authentication. Can federated digital identity web platforms completely eliminate the need for multiple usernames and accounts for different agency portals?

  • Smart Cards. Many national economic stimulus systems and applications will require multi-factor authentication including smart cards – how are government agencies using this technology?

  • Citizen Privacy. What privacy protections are possible in federated systems?

  • Citizen Trust. Can citizens really be trusted to manage their own identity attributes?

  • Cloud Computing. How do we balance its benefits while managing identity risks?  How can cloud computing become a trusted platform for data storage?

  • Key Management.  Large public/private enterprises consume/create enormous amounts of encrypted keys. What is the future of key discovery, maintenance and interoperability?

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio.
