This workshop is aimed at defining and understanding deployer needs with regards to interoperability and harmonization of different identity standards and protocols. The workshop is organized on the premise that there is a spectrum that exists in the marketplace across consumer desire (open vs private), business drivers (low risk transactions vs high risk transactions), regulatory impact (little vs much), implementation cost (low cost vs high cost), etc. End deployers, which currently include AOL, Boeing, General Motors, the Government of British Columbia, and the US General Services Administration (GSA), will present real world use case presentations to help define and develop marketplace drivers, which include:

• Authentication
• Personalization
• Privacy control

Services and applications
• Delegation
• Unification
• Access control

• Secure outsourcing
• Reduce costs
• Privacy Control

Where the identity falls on the spectrum should determine what protocol is used, but much of the current industry conversation seems to be focused on protocols, seemingly disregarding the drivers—and the goals behind the drivers. This session aims to correct this orientation by using real use cases based on real market scenarios to define the spectrum and drive interoperability, recognizing that different protocols work best in different situations but that ultimately the whole spectrum must interoperate, or we’ll create confusing stovepipes. For the industry to advance, we need heterogeneous, interoperable solutions that can answer:
• Internet scale…and robustness
• User experience…and security
• Personalization…and anonymity
• Freedom…and trust
• “Being present to win”…and the “break glass” scenario
