As the World Turns: Real-World Identity Relationships Driving Data Decisioning
A massive new identity system-of-systems is emerging. Billions of previously isolated devices and cloud-native microservices are joining this digital ecosystem to serve organizations and individuals. In the meantime, many relationships in the real world can change in an instant, from device/user pairings and unpairings to business contract formations to marriages and divorces. Business decisions need to be made in near-real-time about everything: not just authorized access but consented data sharing, customer relationship management, access delegation, and more. As real-world relationships change and information generation rises, a crisis of security, privacy, and trust has emerged. What’s missing in this new digital world? Tackling these business decisions with a new class of dynamic decision capabilities. For example, if an individual sets up sharing of a variety of health and fitness wearable data with her spouse, how can she, and the company managing her healthcare payment benefits, ensure that a divorce doesn’t leave any loose data ends dangling? It’s achievable with User-Managed Access (UMA) and Identity Relationship Management (IRM). Join this session to see firsthand how to enable more intelligent, secure, and privacy-respecting access decisions for all connected people, services, and things.

Keeping up with the Kantarians
2019 marks Kantara's 10 year anniversary. What a ride! Kantara's provenance can help folks newer to the digital identity domain appreciate why recent history informs the current challenges. It also helps contextualize Kantara's 'raison d'etre' in drawing the community together to work on a range of specifications, best practice, R&D and conformity assessment programs. This session will connect the recent past with the 'here and now' to give attendees a rich tapestry of understanding to appreciate the role of industry consortia and standards development organizations to transition the digital economy to a more mature state.
