Identiverse Content Countdown Series, Part 4: Identity Standards and Architecture

Identity standards and architecture form the bedrock of our industry, providing the foundational technologies and best-practice patterns for resilient, scalable, secure and user-oriented identity deployments. It’s no surprise then that you’ll find plenty of sessions on these topics at Identiverse 2018 (formerly Cloud Identity Summit). In fact, there are so many that it would be impossible to list every single one…but here are a few highlights, including some old favourites (authentication, privileged access management, federation) as well as some hot technologies like the Internet of Things.
