Yubico at CIS: FIDO, Mobile, ID Proofing. We’ll cover it all!

Today kicks off the annual Cloud Identity Summit (CIS) at the Sheraton Grand Chicago, where the brightest minds across the identity and security industry convene to discuss intelligent identity. Yubico will exhibit at the event (Booth #425) and contribute to several speaking sessions regarding FIDO, Federation, ID Proofing, Intelligent Identity, and Mobile SSO. Below are sessions we find particularly interesting.  

We kick off CIS on Monday (June 19) with Derek Hanson, Director of Solutions Architecture and Standards at Yubico, taking part in the FIDO Workshop from 9am-12pm CT, in the Sheraton Ballroom II. At 10:50am, Derek will deliver a case study on FIDO, Federation, and Facebook social login. Websites can eliminate account takeover through phishing by leveraging U2F-supported Facebook social login, which is easy to implement and already in wide global use.

On Tuesday (June 20), in the ‘New Move in Authentication’ track, Jerrod Chong, VP of Solutions Engineering at Yubico, will deliver a presentation on FIDO, Federation, and ID Proofing. You can attend this session in the Sheraton Ballroom III from 2:30-2:55 pm CT. Jerrod will discuss how identity proofing and strong authentication are often at odds when it comes to privacy — and that it doesn’t need to be that way. Diving deeper, he will provide a look at how three building blocks can work together to create a robust identity ecosystem. The solution is a three-fold component-based architecture for remote identity proofing to create a privacy-preserving credential, an identity proofing engine using OpenID Connect, and strong authentication using FIDO protocols.

David Treece, Senior Solutions Architect at Yubico, will participate in a separate panel discussion on Tuesday. David will speak on the ‘Intelligent Identity Architecture’ panel from 4:20-5:20 pm CT in the Sheraton Ballroom 1. With the dynamically changing nature of business and ever-increasing security risk, identity access management (IAM) systems struggle to keep up. IAM systems are complex, inflexible, and difficult to change. Instead, these systems need to be intelligent enough to understand context and new entities, interpret risk, and deliver a simple user experience. This panel will reveal — from the trenches — how to move an IAM program forward to implement intelligent capabilities while dealing with the realities of budgets, existing infrastructure, and competing priorities.

With all of the fantastic upcoming content at CIS, we also want to highlight the following sessions, which we are excited to be part of:
