How OIX sees the future identity landscape and ecosystem

OIX’s members are working together to create the environment for service providers and consumers to leverage the next generation of identity solutions. So OIX has a perhaps unique view of the challenge that dealing with identity creates for both service providers and consumers alike. With that in mind, an OIX executive will discuss what the identity landscape currently looks like in 2019 as well as its role within the identity ecosystem.

A potential decentralised solution for a Consistent Staff Identity

Philip Graham and the Consistent Staff Identity project team discuss the locally-led collaboration between Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, NHS England, GMC, NHS Digital and industry which explored  solutions to the significant burdens on staff, employers and risks to patient safety arising through current NHS pre-employment processes and the mobility of healthcare professionals due to the unprecedented demand for their services.  A decentralised identity solution using  Distributed Ledger Technology was examined to enable several components representing professional bodies and employers that allow an employee, such as a Doctor, to share their digital credentials for example, complete digital pre-employment checks such as passport details, proof of address, GMC details and immunisation history.  This has been become the foundation and basis to enable  an employer to provision access to IT systems.

Case Study: The Passport Office

HM Passport Office discusses how it has transformed its old paper based “countersignature” process to confirm the identity of passport applicants and replaced it with an online authentication system to support the digitisation of applications. This session will discuss how the digital team solved challenges and got the right balance between confirmation of identity and usability of the service.

Re-inventing Identity Management at the BBC

You don’t need to go to many Identity Management conferences to realise that Identity and Access Management projects are hard to implement and also that IAM is one of the least “technological” of the Security disciplines, with it being 10% technology and 90% business change.  The BBC is currently meeting the challenge of IAM transformation head on.

As one of the 90% Ros Smith will explain:

  • The strategic approach being taken
  • What has been achieved so far
  • Where they are going next.
