Identity Summit

Today, there is a great need for developing technologies aimed to increasing trust in online identities and transactions. Many initiatives are recognizing that global standards for providing higher identity authentication assurance, higher trust and confidence in the exchange and verification of identity credentials, secure computing and trusted platforms, protecting individual identities and their privacy need to be developed.

The emergence of Cloud computing necessitate the need for investigating federation relationships and trust using multiple trust frameworks. As the move to cloud computing continues, there will be increasing need for defining and standardizing trust frameworks that enable policy makers across various markets to set the security and privacy rules for identity service providers and relying parties. Within the Clouds, Trust Frameworks provide the foundations for the sharing of identity using standard based profiles that ensure security, privacy and enhanced adoption.

Q10/17 is pleased to organize the Identity Summit as a public event. The objectives of the summit are to gather a larger number of experts in the field to help Q10/17 progress its work into various Identity Management areas. The program is available via goto meeting facilities for remote participation.
