Exciting times indeed in the world of Digital Identity. Huh? What the heck?
What’s going on? The internet has a crappy way of managing your personal information. We’re trying to fix that.
Why should I care? Right now you’re at quite a high risk of having your identity stolen, losing control of your personal information, of being phished or losing track of what personal information is stored where. See my previous post on Identity Fragmentation [LINK].
So what are you talking about now? RSA is happening NEXT WEEK! (7-11th April) [LINK]
What’s RSA? Only the largest conference focused on information security in the world. It starts in San Francisco and is replicated around the world.
Is Shanahan going to be there? Well no, but my code will be. A while back I created a Cardspace Identity Provider and Relying Party test harness [LINK]. That code has been participating in the OSIS Interop 2008.
What’s OSIS Interop? It’s a grass-roots effort to prove out the interoperability of various Identity solutions.
We’ve been testing the interoperability (how things work together) of all these solutions since January. You can checkout the results of the testing here [LINK].
Who’s participating? Easy, just checkout this diagram (yes that’s my logo underneath Bandit!): Click for a LARGER image.
So get yourself to RSA and checkout the OSIS Interop room. They have BEER!!! [LINK]
