An Open Event on "Security and Identity Management in a Federated World" was held on 2 October 2006, hosted by the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in collaboration with Sun Microsystems. Speakers included Sun Microsystems' John Gage and Liberty Alliance's Hellmuth Broda. ITU's Lara Srivastava participated in the event and spoke on "the problem of identity in networked spaces". Her presentation is available here.
The subject of digital identity will be examined more closely in the forthcoming 2006 ITU Internet Report entitled "digital.life", to be released at ITU Telecom World 2006, 4-8 December 2006 (Hong Kong, China).
