Representatives from the identity and Web communities today announced a public workshop taking place from 8:00am – 5:15 pm on April 20 at RSA Conference 2009. Sponsored by the Concordia Project, DataPortability Project, the Information Card Foundation, Liberty Alliance, the OpenID Foundation and OSIS, the event spotlights current and future trends in digital identity management and illustrates the benefits collaboration in the global identity sector is delivering to businesses and individuals. All RSA Conference participants are invited to attend the interactive event.

“Identity management technologies and potential new business models are advancing at a rapid pace,” said Gerry Gebel, vice president and service director at Burton Group. “The April 20 workshop brings together a distinguished collection of identity community efforts and standards groups to share their recent accomplishments as well as provide a view into future developments.”

Designed to provide attendees with insight into how to leverage a variety of successful identity management scenarios both now and as the industry moves forward, the workshop will feature case studies and presentations by identity experts from CA, NTT, Oracle, Ping Identity and RSA, the security division of EMC. OSIS will present interoperability demonstrations including compliance with the OASIS standard versions of WS-Trust and WS-Security Policy; OpenID feature testing; and use of verified claims using Information Cards. The Concordia Project will present use cases and interoperability scenarios leveraging both OpenID and SAML 2.0 identity specifications.

At 1:10 p.m., an interactive panel discussion made up of representatives from the business and technology identity communities will focus on the state-of-identity and short and long-term market drivers. Exhibitors during the event include Acxiom, Azigo, Microsoft, NRI, NTT, the OpenID Foundation, Oracle, Ping Identity, Privo, RSA and the US General Services Administration (GSA).
