OIX: Trust Framework Interoperability

Nick Mothershaw, Chief Identity Strategist at the Open Identity Exchange will highlight some of the recent work the organisation has carried out with various Trust Frameworks globally and the work currently underway in the UK.

  • Interoperability in the UK: How the UK Trust Framework sets the foundations for this, and how OIX and the collective private sector Trust Schemes are working to ensure users can leverage a single ID (of thier choice) across many use cases.
  • How our work links into One Login for government. This will bring interoperability across central government. But what about local government? What about public – private interoperability?
  • How “mobile driving licences” (mDL) are creating re-usable, and interoperable, Digital IDs in the US. How this might work (or not) in the UK.
  • The work OIX is doing to enable cross-border ID interoperability through common ID Policy descriptions. How this fits into the GAIN initiative. Benefits to the UK public sector.
  • How the new Linux hosted Open Wallet Foundation fits into this overall picture – enabling globally interoperable Digital ID that does not come from the Tech Giants.

Can mobile up the identity ante

The mobile device has taken on almost god-like status in the everyday life of citizens. It seems that we can no longer move from room to room, let alone leave the house without our beloved phone. As such, the mobile device may offer a useful way for many (but not all) citizens to interact with government. This discussion will explore the ways in which mobile devices can act to present identity claims for government services.

The panel will be able to answer questions on advances in mobile identity, such as the use of Apple Wallet to hold driver’s license details and self sovereign apps. The discussion will also looks at what part mobile operators can play in providing verified data into the government services ecosystem.

Expanding upon this, the panel will look at the types of data that a mobile operator can provide during an online transaction to create more secure identity-based government services.

Frictionless onboarding in a hybrid world

In today’s world, our daily lives centre around transactions such as exchanging our data or verifying our identities. With the global shift to hybrid work, how can governments reduce friction when onboarding staff and temporary workers? By introducing verifiable workplace credentials, governments can streamline their onboarding process and cut administration time, reducing the cost of potential security incidents, increasing employee productivity and empowering staff to do the jobs they are hired to do.

In this session, Condatis and ITC will discuss:

  • The common customer challenges we see across highly regulated industries.
  • How verifiable credentials can streamline their HR and operational systems.
  • How organisations can tackle staff mobility challenges using Microsoft Entra Verified ID.
  • How governments can track the credentials of their workforce to ensure the right people have the right skills and clearance to carry out their work.

NETWORKING LUNCH

The Identity fit and local government services

Local government is increasingly looking how citizen services can be replicated / replaced by digital versions. How can this be done so that all citizens have equal access to these services and in a way that secure against fraud when identity document such as birth, marriage, and death certificates are used?

Can you still have decentralised ID and eat your blockchain

A report from DARPA has identified serious security flaws in blockchain and importantly, that blockchain is not decentralised after all. With this in mind, how should government proceed with self sovereign projects? What are the alternatives to having a decentralised identity without the need for a blockchain? Can you still have decentralised and eat your blockchain?
