If you are attending User-Centric ID Live at the Washington DC Convention Center, be sure to check out the ¨Drivers and innovators: Meet leaders from the major identity initiatives¨ session today (10/15/13) from 4:00pm – 5:15pm. Our CEO and Founder, Stina Ehrensvard, will be participating on this panel with other FIDO Alliance members from Google, Blackberry, NXP Semiconductors and Nok Nok Labs. The panel will be discussing how the FIDO Alliance works on open standards for simpler, stronger open authentication standards.
Also, do not miss the session “Track 1: Identity Ecosystems & Technologies: User-centric identity concepts, technologies and how they will impact business” tomorrow (10/16/13) from 9-10:15 AM. In this session Stina will be presenting more details about Universal 2nd Factor Authentication (U2F). As one of the technical specifications hosted by FIDO Alliance, U2F introduces the first driverless smart card with user presence. Successfully deployed inside Google, it also challenges the traditional business model for secure online identities, allowing users to buy and control any number of real and “anonymous” identities to easily and securely access any number of services.
User-Centric ID Live is an event focused on the business of user-centric identity. Conference sessions focus on technologies, standards, implementations, applications, and business models in the new user-centric identity ecosystem.
