Time: 8:30-9:30 PT/ 5:30-6:30 CET

Abstract: Government organizations across the globe have explored the cost savings and productivity increases associated with Liberty federation and identity Web services standards. They’ve also closely examined the privacy and security safeguards in the specifications, and found them to be powerful in the construction of their new initiatives. Leading this web cast will be two leaders in eGovernment activities in Denmark and the UK who are helping to drive powerful initiatives.Mr. Nielsen will discuss Denmark’s reference model to achieve a shared federation service, which including standards, a draft Danish SAML profile, policies etc., as well as details on all of the well-thought-out requirements that have been defined at the front-end of their work. One requirement is a decentralized approach – which call for an architecture that can guide several initiatives into a larger and coherent solutions over time. For standards Denmark recommends SAML 2.0/Liberty Federation while working to accelerate convergence of the federation standards.Following this presentation, Mr. Crawford will then address activities in the UK, where his organization has created a prototype Trust Services Infrastructure which might be used to meet the requirements from the central government Department for Education and Skills for the issue of a Youth Opportunity Card (potentially to every 13-19yr old in the UK). The aim of the YOC card is to provide DFES with the means to deliver incentives payments to young people via a smartcard, including the challenge of provisioning large numbers of public and private sector service providers of ‘constructive activities’ . Following the presentations a Q&A; session will be available. This session will be of strong value to any organization involved in consumer-facing identity-based activities to understand the technical and business steps organizations must go through to plan for success.To attend this meeting, you must first register for it.
