Thu, 08 Feb 2007 10:24:25 +0000The big news out of the RSA conference is the announcement of a "marriage" of OpenID and CardSpace. For those that aren't up on the inner workings of user-centric identity: CardSpace is Microsoft's instantiation of the InfoCards Meta-system that Kim Cameron proposed several years ago; OpenID is a URL-centric identity protocol that has grown up with the grassroots nurturing of players like Sxip Identity, JanRain, Verisign, Cordance, Six Apart, and Netmesh.

Mon, 29 Jan 2007 11:27:22 +0000The RSA conference always serves as one of the two or three windows that the identity community uses to launch new products (the other two being Burton Group's Catalyst and our own Digital ID World conference). As such, the weeks leading up to RSA always feature a spate of new company briefings.
Mon, 22 Jan 2007 12:32:07 +0000I first met Brian Oberkirch at the Syndicate conference in San Francisco in December of 2005. At the time, I'm quite sure that he didn't know of my connection to Digital ID World, or identity in general.
Thu, 11 Jan 2007 12:34:59 +0000Every now and then a technical disagreement betrays the state of a marketplace. That phenomenon is currently happening in the user-centric identity trenches.
Mon, 08 Jan 2007 10:01:04 +0000[Note: Eric is having trouble posting today, and I have posted this article for him. So "I" refers to Eric in this article.
Tue, 19 Dec 2006 08:06:59 +0000Having graded our identity predictions from last year, its time to venture forth into the uncharted waters of 2007. The following are our divinations on what is to come:1.
Wed, 13 Dec 2006 13:11:12 +0000At the beginning of 2006, we posted a list of predictions over on Digital ID World for the upcoming year in identity. In keeping with our historical tradition, I'd like to grade our past performance prior to looking toward the future.
Mon, 04 Dec 2006 13:38:30 +0000[Ed. We have recently seen a rise in interest in several new identity technologies.
Mon, 20 Nov 2006 11:49:05 +0000Back in the early mists of identity time, "identity management" was referred to as "AAA" (triple A) -- authentication, access control and authorization. Over time, AAA evolved to mean authentication, authorization and acountability.
Thu, 16 Nov 2006 09:08:19 +0000Two recent releases in the federated identity marketplace caught my eye -- and may speak to the development of federation deployments:1. Ping Identity announced that the U.
Mon, 13 Nov 2006 10:56:03 +0000Network Access Control ("NAC") was an emerging focus at last September's Digital ID World conference. The reason for including NAC in the agenda arose from my belief (fueled by talks with enterprises) that network-layer identity management was an area that is fast becoming an important piece of enterprise architecture.
Tue, 07 Nov 2006 10:17:16 +0000Two things have caught my eye recently (both on Dan Farber's blog):1. Mashery launching: an API management service that offers, among other, things "access control.
Wed, 01 Nov 2006 10:47:36 +0000Paul Murphy has been writing about identity management over on his Managing Linux blog. His basic thesis is that while most CIOs now are putting "identity management" as a top priority, most also can't tell you what "identity management" is.
Fri, 20 Oct 2006 06:10:11 +0000Way back in the early mists of identity time, I was speaking with Bryan Field-Elliott (then CTO of Ping Identity) about the earliest drafts of the Liberty Alliance protocols, and whether or not they could be used for what we then called "internet identity." (Note: "internet identity" is now called "URL-based identity," or even more broadly and less accurately "user-centric identity.
Tue, 17 Oct 2006 13:25:50 +0000Phil and I have been speaking a lot recently about the changing of security models in the enterprise. The three basic models actually seem to represent a learning curve that both enterprises and the vendors are evolving through.
Thu, 12 Oct 2006 07:38:21 +0000John Milan has written an interesting piece about "social business applications" over on Read/Write web. He begins by defining "social business applications" as "software that coordinates group interaction that is important to running your business" -- a bit amorphous but workable definition.
Mon, 09 Oct 2006 07:08:25 +0000It's now almost a full month since Digital ID World is over and done, and my thoughts about what happened are finally starting to coalesce. "Starting" - I said, and this post (I hope) reflects that beginning.
Fri, 06 Oct 2006 12:08:21 +0000When looking at the larger picture of identity and identity management, it is easy to perceive certain things as relatively small issues and push them into the "we'll look at that later" category. But sometimes these issues aren't quite as small as they seem...
