Sofitel (San Francisco Bay), Redwood City, CA, USA

Much work has been done by organizations across the globe in implementing solutions that rely upon unique identity data to accomplish different tasks, from posting on a social network to transferring money to making a donation to a political site. This workshop recognizes that different business models, product approaches and end-purpose goals drive different implementations, and consistent standards must exist that don’t result in siloed approaches. Through a variety of presentations, panels and a hands-on session (bring your computers!), we’ll explore how to use Identity Web services to achieve:
-Internet scale…and robustness
-User experience…and security
-Personalization…and anonymity
-Freedom…and trust

Attendees will leave with a well-rounded understanding of what can be achieved with the Liberty Alliance standards and the convergence that’s underway in the identity space.

Anyone exploring or using web services that make use of identity information, particularly from IdPs/WSPs and SPs/WSCs, is invited to attend. All organizations, small and large, are welcome to attend this free workshop.
