Identity and Trust Person
The rise of Internet identity began in earnest ten years ago, as academic, government and corporate and social deployments started and began to influence each other. Government initiatives have come and gone and come anew. Research and education deployments worldwide have pushed the envelope but are now challenged to interfederate. Social providers evolve business models that leverage the user as product.
There are impressive successes now in many instances and key integrations have been achieved. The extent of usage has grown dramatically. At the same time, there are obvious stress points, where the conflict of economic motives compound issues of privacy, where the international differences in cultures and legal systems create a swamp of issues, and helping the institution and the user manage the complexity of privacy. This session will provide both an update and an assessment of Internet identity and discuss how the stress points may be addressed, or not.
