Focus On Interoperability at European e-ID Conference in La Hulpe

European E-Identity Management Conference : 04 March, 2010  (New Product)
Delegates of the European e-ID Interoperability Conference, held this year in the beautiful Belgian town of La Hulpe, will be discussing the interoperability challenges facing the public service sector
eema, the Independent European e-Identity (e-ID) & Security Association, in conjunction with Innotribe (SWIFT) and supported by BBS, today announces that it will be providing insight into the current and future e-ID trends across the EU, at the European e-ID Interoperability Conference. Taking place on 16th and 17th March at the SWIFT headquarters in La Hulpe, Belgium, this annual event places the spotlight on the challenges faced in public service provision.

Now in its fifth year, the European e-ID Interoperability Conference is a neutral forum where industry and public sector professionals address specific areas of importance in the digital identity space. Delegates at the conference will benefit from real-life cross-border and cross-organisational interoperability e-ID case studies, experiences of high profile businesses, as well as European governments at varying stages of implementation. Technical issues and problems facing governments and businesses will be addressed in several panel and roundtable discussions.

The conference is an ideal destination for identity management and IT security professionals, CIOs and government agency representatives who want to learn about the latest developments within e-ID, as well as how some organisations are already managing successful internal and external e-ID schemes.

Key speakers confirmed for the conference include the Head of Innovation at SWIFT, Kosta Peric; CEO of Everett, Peter Valkenburg; and Chief Architect of Identity in the Identity and Security Division at Microsoft, Kim Cameron. They will explore the current e-ID perspective and initiatives from around Europe, in both government and business environments.

Executive Director at eema, Roger Dean, comments on the focus of this year's conference, "Interoperability of electronic public services across the EU is crucial. However, it does present challenges, particularly with regard to centralised and proprietary IT architectures, fragmented responsibilities and cumbersome collaboration, as well as the sheer volume of varying identification and exchange security methods."

On the first day of the conference, representatives from the EU e-ID interoperability pilot projects: PEPPOL, SPOCKS and STORK, will debate the interoperability and sustainability of the pilots. The panel will look beyond the successful outcome of e-ID Large Scale Pilots to identify which additional requirements may be needed to achieve the goal of a single, seamless, pan-European market.

On the second day, Valkenburg will chair a roundtable that will reveal the findings of a new whitepaper produced by Everett in conjunction with eema titled: 'e-Identity 2010, case studies and lessons learnt'. The paper uses early adopter experiences to outline the main e-identity business propositions, including related business models, common issues and pitfalls, for those who are involved in establishing or managing e-ID initiatives from a business and high-level architectural point of view.

Other conference highlights include:

Tuesday 16th March 2010

* The latest European Union initiatives to facilitate the provision of cross-border public services - a European Large Scale bridging action on eIDM: Dr Aniyan Varghese, DG INFSO of the eGovernment European Commission
* SWIFT's experiences with digital identity - theory versus practice: Chief Architect at SWIFT, Jacques Hagelstein

Wednesday 17th March 2010

* Getting to grips with mobile e-ID solutions and their role in multi-channel utilisation: Jon Shamah of BBS and Marcus Klische of RIM
* eMe and eBiz, the virtual interactive vault: Peter Hinssen of Across Technology

Belgium has been chosen for the conference as one of the pioneers of e-ID in Europe. More than 25 million citizen e-ID cards are currently in use in Belgium, providing secure access and authentication for more than 250 public and private services, ranging from online income tax returns and health services, to securing chat room use for youngsters.

The European e-ID Interoperability Conference is open to eema members and non-members.
