Identity Management Forum addresses transparent government

Oasis IDtrust : 17 September, 2009  (New Product)
Oasis IDtrust's Identity Management forum for 2009 sponsored by Microsoft and addresses the ID management challenges facing Transparent Government
As national and international governments endeavour to provide open, transparent, and trusted services, the challenges of managing citizens' identities and access to information require careful planning, a strong policy focus, and attention to standards and interoperability. The risks, rewards, and repercussions of transparent government will be explored at Identity Management 2009, an Oasis IDtrust forum that will be held 29-30 September at the US National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) facility in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

"How do we balance open access, transparency and accountability with security and privacy? Governments all over the world are grappling with that question," said Mary Ellen Callahan, Chief Privacy Officer for the US Department of Homeland Security. Callahan will provide an address on "Addressing Privacy, Trust, and Accountability," with Ari Schwartz, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for the Centre for Democracy and Technology (CDT).

Other presentations will be given by Peter Alterman, Senior Advisor for Strategic Initiatives, US National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Jim Harper, Director of Information Policy Studies for the CATO Institute.

The Oasis Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) Technical Committee will meet in conjunction with Identity Management 2009, which is sponsored by Microsoft.

"Promoting widespread use of secure and trustworthy digital identities, while preserving personal privacy and protecting civil liberties, is a critical challenge for governments and the technology industry," said Lee Nackman, corporate vice president of the Identity and Security Division at Microsoft. "Working with government leaders, industry partners and consortia like Oasis, Microsoft is committed to the technical and policy innovation needed to provide citizens with safe access to resources and services, in both the public and private sectors. Identity Management 2009 will provide an ideal forum for knowledge sharing and collaboration in this area."
