Identiverse Content Countdown Series

Part 4: Architecture and Standards

The standards we rely on, and the systems architectures we design, form the firm foundations upon which we build safe, secure, reliable, scalable and interoperable identity solutions. Staying abreast of the wealth of new technologies and techniques as they arise—and understanding what’s ready to deploy now and what just needs a watching brief—is no easy task.

The architecture and standards track at Identiverse is designed to keep you informed and up-to-date, as well as help you sort the ‘important’ from the ‘interesting’ in an increasingly complex field.

As with our coverage of the security track in the previous blog, I’ll refer you to the detailed agenda on the Identiverse website where you can use the topic filter to  search ‘Architecture and Standards’ sessions. That’s where you’ll find our coverage of distributed ledger, authorization, authentication, provisioning and more.

In this blog, I’ll highlight a handful of other sessions and keynotes which are in other tracks, but which will also be of interest. Consider these sessions:
