The Internet Identity Workshop focuses on user-centric identity and identity in the large. Providing identity services between people, websites, and organizations that don't necessarily have a formalized relationship is a different problem than providing authentication and authorization services within a single organization.
The goal of the Internet Identity Workshop is to support the continued development of several open efforts in the user-centric identity community. These include the following:
* Technical systems and proposal like Yadis (LID, OpenID, Inames), MetaIdentity system, Infocards, and the Higgings Project
* Legal and social movements and issues like Identity Commons, identity rights agreements, and service providers reputation.
* Use cases for emerging markets such as user generated video (e.g. dabble.com), innovative economic networks (e.g. interraproject.org), attention brokering and lead generation (e.g. root.net), consumer preferences (e.g. permission based marketing), and civil society networking
The workshop will take place May 2 and 3, 2006 at the Computer History Museum. We will also have a 1/2 day on the first of May for newbies who want to get oriented to the protocols and issues before diving into the community. If you are new to the discussion, we encourage your attendance on May 1st because of the open format we'll be using to organize the conference.
