Trust and usability are prerequisites for the development of commercial, administrative, social media and other e-services. To enable trust and usability today, secure and easy-to-use e-identification is in the users, service providers and the public interest. Identity federation is a solution that is now beginning to spread and gain in importance.
An identity federation is an association of organizations that have agreed to rely on each others’ electronic identities to facilitate user access and protect personal privacy when using electronic services.
During this workshop, participants will review practical experience in developing and establishing identity federation. Target groups for the workshop are the organizations which operate or plan to establish identity federation, email service providers, credential service providers/identity providers.
