The Interenet Identity Workshop is about moving user-centric identity ideas and technologies forward. Come to this event to learn more, participate in the community and shape the future of the web.

What is User-Centric Identity?

User-centric identity starts with the individual, and his or her needs . It is about working relationships and services between individuals and retailers, employers, membership bodies, and organizations of any kind. It is not about a centralized solution, or anybody's silo. As such it solves different problems than the familiar ones of providing authentication and authorization services within a single organization, or federation between different organizations.

What is going on in the field?

OpenID is emerging as a protocol for SSO across the web.

    * It has major adoptions from sites like AOL, Digg, FaceBook, and

    * open source platforms like MediaWiki, WordPress, Drupal, Joomla using it,

    * startups are forming around this emerging field like NetMesh, Sxip, and JanRain,

    * and reputation services are emerging like Opinity and Jyte.

Legal and Social issues about norms and uses of identity continue to surface.

    * How can I share my information and know it will not be misused?

    * How can we innovate better End User License Agreements?

    * How do young people, men, women and diverse groups understand and represent identity differently online?

    * How do online and offline identity relate?

    * How does 'official identity' and 'web constructed identities' relate?

    * What is the role of  anonymity and pseudonimity  and how are they explicitly supported in this ecology?
