Digital Web ID card issued to EIC conference attendees

European Identity Conference : 23 April, 2009  (New Product)
Attendees of the European Identity Conference to be held in May will receive Web ID Card from the organisers to gain secure access to conference resources
See our events guide listing for more details


The Third European Identity Conference (EIC) 2009 organized by the analyst group Kuppinger Cole is to be held in Munich from May 5-8, 2009. The organizer will be issuing its own 'KuppingerCole Card' to conference participants for the main lead event on the theme of Identity Management. This digital ID card is a so-called Information Card, a standard designed to replace the classic login process combining a user name and password with a new technology. Conference participants can use this card, for example with Windows CardSpace, to securely log in to the customer area under the Kuppingercole web site as well as world-wide on all supported Internet sites.

The technology for issuing the information card originates from fun communications GmbH from Karlsruhe, specialists in the development of IT solutions in the Identity Management sector. Only last year fun communications successfully launched an application with the Information Card identity technology with its WebCard Loyalty portal.

Martin Kuppinger, co-founder of Kuppinger Cole + Partner: 'We are delighted to be able to present a functional Information Card solution for participants at this year's EIC, and in doing so to show that this technology is today already operational. The solution realized by fun communications demonstrates the capabilities of the open Information Card standard as a secure method of Identity Management which returns control over identity to the user.'

Information Card, CardSpace, User Centric Identity, business models based on these technologies, as well as the Identity Metasystem defined by Kim Cameron, belong to one of the core themes at this year's European Identity Conference 2009. A panel discussion 'Take a Card: Information Cards as Enterprise Authenticators' on May 7th, 2009 with Kim Cameron, Microsoft, Eve Maler, Sun Microsystems, Paul Trevithick, Azigo, together with Johannes Feulner from fun communications, and moderated by the IT expert & columnist for 'Network World' Dave Kearns, will be devoted to this theme.

A pre-conference meeting on the foundation of a German chapter of the Information Card Foundation (ICF) will be held between 9 am and 1 pm on Tuesday, May 5th, 2009. Entry is free of charge.
