Introduction to Identity - Part 1
(Part 1) The importance of Digital Identity and Access Management continues to grow in the field of cybersecurity. IAM still ensures “the right access to the right people at the right time for the right reasons,” but other issues like new regulations, cyber-espionage, insider threats, IoT, and privacy concerns have made IAM one of the fastest growing segments of IT. Unfortunately, it can also be one of the most confusing to understand. New technology and new use cases bring with them new terminology and new practices. For identity practitioners who are early in their career, security leaders and executives responsible for identity systems, it can be difficult to even figure out where to start. Every explanation seems to reference a multitude of other practices and dozens of confusing acronyms. Even seasoned professionals can loose track of what's new, especially if it's outside of their immediate area of focus. This workshop -- provided by IDPro -- will provide a comprehensive (and fun) introductory view of the identity world that will give participants a solid understanding of IAM’s foundations. Part 1 of this 2-part class begins with the basics like directories, identity proofing, provisioning, authentication (including multi-factor), authorization, as well as federation technologies like SAML, OAuth, and OpenID Connect. In Part 2, we build on those foundational technologies to explain PKI & digital certificates, privileged access management, identity for IoT, identity assurance, privacy issues, identity standards organizations, and even known attack vectors.

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.

The Most Forgotten Thing in Identity Management
Passwords? No, it’s not passwords. I’ll give you a hint: we all use them. Everyday. Many many times a day. Still don’t know? It’s the humble username. The “middle child” of identity management, the username doesn’t get the same attention that its big brother “Password” and its little sister “Password-less” get. Instead, just does his job without thanks or recognition. But, failing to pay attention to username can have major negative impact in both B2B and B2C scenarios. In this talk, Mr. Glazer explores the critical aspects of usernames, highlights downsides of getting username wrong, and offers some best practices when designing username schemes.
