The Internet Identity Workshop focuses on “user-centric identity” and trying to solve the technical challenge of how people can manage their own identity across the range of websites, services, companies and organizations that they belong to, purchase from and participate with. We also work on trying to address social and legal issues that arise with these new tools. This conference we are going to also focus some attention on business models that can make this ecology of web services thrive.
Today it goes beyond “just” identity to be inclusive of:
- Open Standards that have been born and developed at IIW - OpenID, OAuth, Activity Streams, Portable Contacts, Salmon Protocol, SCIM, UMA, and more
- The Federated Social Web (peer to peer following)
- Vendor Relationship Management
- Personal Data Services - collection, storage and value generation
- Anonymity, Pseudonymity and Reputation Online (think google+ controversy)
- Legal Innovation including, Information Sharing Agreements, Data Ownership Agreements for and the development of “trust” frameworks across the ecosystem.
- NSTIC - the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (it uses the term “user-centric identity” 4 times & “citizen-centric identity” once)
- Cloud Identity and the intersection of enterprise ID and people (consumer) ID.
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?
How does it work?
After the brief introduction on the first day there are no formal presentations, no keynotes, no panels. We make the schedule when we are face to face the first day of the conference. We do this in part because the field is moving so rapidly that we your 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 will make it.

Many attendees stay at The Hotel Avante which offers free shuttle service to the Computer History Museum where IIW is held.
