The Internet Identity Workshop XIX #19 - 2014B
October 28, 29 and 30 2014
Computer History Museum - Mountain View, CA
The Internet Identity Workshop has been finding, probing and solving identity issues twice every year since 2005. Every IIW moves topics, code and projects downfield. Name an identity topic and it's likely that more substantial discussion and work has been done at IIW than any other conference!
Why you should come
This is the time and place that you get to discuss, share your knowledge, work on and learn about anything & everyting related to Internet Idenity today. Topics at the last IIW held in May 2015 included:
- Emerging Identity protocols, like UMA and Open ID Connect
- Identity system interoperability
- OAuth security
- Being an OAuth provider
- Choosing an Identity Provider
- Using attributes for strong authentication
- Alternatives to SSL
- Personal clouds, stores, lockers, vaults and other first person data systems and services
- IoT (The Internet of Things)
- VRM (Vendor Relationship Management)
- Data liberation and portability
- Distributed trust frameworks
- Non-coercive legal agreement
- Personal sovereignty
- Heterarchy vs. Hierarchy
- The Indie Web
- Earned (rather than coerced) customer loyalty
- Marketing when customers hold most of the cards
- New forms of currency - like Bitcoin
- Privacy in the Age of Surveillance
IIW is an unConference. It has no keynotes or panels, so it's about getting stuff done
The agenda will be created live each day by attendees present at the opening of the day. Doors will open at 8:00 each day with espresso and light breakfast.
Tuesday Day 1 will begin at 9:00AM with introduction/orientation followed by Agenda Creation. There will be 5 working sessions
Wednesday Day 2 will have agenda creation beginning at 9:00AM. There will be 5 working sessions and a Demo Hour after lunch.
Thursday Day 3 Will begin at 9:00AM with agenda setting. There will be 5 working sessions and we will end by 4pm.
How does it work
After the brief introduction on the first day we create the agenda when we are face to face the first each morning of the conference. We do this in part because the field is moving so rapidly that the organizing team are in no position to know what needs to be talked about. We do know great people who will be there and it is the attendees who have a passion to learn and contribute to the event that make it the success it is.
For a good idea about how this works, take a look at this Video Montage of IIW #15 created by TechGoddessJudith. You can find Books of Proceedings (notes from the sessions that were held) for all previous IIW Events here AND a high resolution (PDF) copy of the May 2014 / IIW #18 Book of Proceedings here.
IIW is the place where everyone from a diverse range of projects doing the real work of making this vision happen gathers and works intensively for three days. It is the best place to meet and participate with all the key people and projects! As a community we have been exploring these kinds of questions:
- How are social networking sites and social media tools applying user-centric identity?
- What are the open standards to make it work? (identity and semantic)
- What are technical implementations of those standards?
- How do different standards and technical implementations interoperate?
- What are the new social norms and legal constructs needed to make it work?
- What tools are needed to make it usably secure for end-users?
- What are the businesses cases / models that drive all this?
