The Evolving Identity Stack

John Fontana | Standards and Identity Analyst at Yubico

It has been said that the greatest thing about technology standards is that everyone has one. While the quip may elicit a chuckle, the goal of standards-based identity, authentication and authorization is no laughing matter. The best known and most widely used interoperable, cross-platform standard today for identity and account access is the username and […]

Achieving Strong Authentication at Scale with FIDO2

Andrew Shikiar | Chief Marketing Officer, FIDO Alliance

The FIDO Alliance mission to help the world move beyond passwords with simpler, stronger authentication has always been a somewhat audacious goal. The businesses that came together to form the alliance understood that replacing passwords for online authentication could only ever become commercially viable at scale through a combination of free and open technology standards […]

With the Identiverse 2019 Call for Presentations complete and the review and selection process now well underway, this seemed like a good time to provide a little more insight into the agenda-building effort.   The first step is to start […]

Vectors of Trust

Justin Richer | Security Architect, Software Engineer, Standards Editor and Systems Designer

Anyone working in the identity industry will tell you that identity is difficult to define. Anyone who says it’s simple is trying to sell you their definition. Even harder than a universal definition, and perhaps more important, is a consistent means of measurement. People can still log in if we disagree on the details of […]

Chrome Puts Token Binding in a Bind

Brian Campbell | Distinguished Engineer, Ping Identity

Bearer tokens underlie the vast majority of online identity transactions engaged in by identity professionals and amateurs alike. A bearer token has the property that any party in possession of that token (i.e., the “bearer”) can use it to access any associated resources. No other proof beyond the simple possession of the token is needed […]

Consolidation Not Fragmentation, at Last!

Colin Wallis | Executive Director, Kantara Initiative

It’s hard to believe a month has gone by since the identerati converged on the Hynes Convention Center in Boston and emerged four days later as the ‘Identiversed’. I’m still emailing follow-ups, and receiving them too, as many folks took time out to celebrate the 4th of July the week following the event. These big […]

The State of the Authorization Union

David Brossard | VP Customer Relations, Axiomatics

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to talk at the European Identity Conference on a topic that is close to my heart: authorization. More specifically, I discussed how the evolving IT landscape requires an even finer grained authorization framework to be able to deliver value to consumers as a whole. In a later […]

Identiverse Content Countdown Series, Part 6: Agenda Highlights Recap

Andrew Hindle | Content Chair, Identiverse
