Description: Digital identity is the cornerstone of trust in our digital economy, but our ecosystem and solutions don’t always match the nature of trust: it isn’t binary. It’s inherently tied to risk and context, and just as when you meet someone for the first time, you might build trust faster if someone you already trust vouches for them.
So, if we have independent arbiters of trust (like the friend that introduces you to a friend), trust standards can feel binary and fluid, but we often don’t maximize on this benefit. but don’t maximize their benefit when trust is fluid. However, there has been little investment in innovative research on how this trust is identified or earned. This session will challenge attendees to think about what guidelines, frameworks, and research we need to start talking about now that will shape the future of digital identity, including: What additional tiers of NIST 800-63-3 IAL could mean for better verification? How can we get the most from trust frameworks like the Kantara Initiative? Where can we find or generate innovative research to explore proofing methods that consider the dynamic nature of trust (e.g. grows with time, acts like a network)?
