  • Trusted technology -   You can trust local cloud providers because you know that they have gone though the security certification process and have designed their clouds to be secure from the ground up.
  • Trusted partners -   We use partners so if things go wrong you have an ecosystem of partners to help you. You are not dependent on only one vendor.

16:50 Will robots need passports? Extending the digital id across the Internet of Things (IoT)

Twenty five years ago, on the internet nobody knew you were a dog. Now they don’t know if you’re a fridge pretending to be a dog. Pretty soon they won’t know if you’re a bot pretending to be a fridge pretending to be a dog. In a world of fake identities and fake news, where it is your car’s braking system getting hacked not your credit card, we need to up the priority of digital identity and we need to develop digital identity infrastructure for people, things and bots. This presentation sets out a practical model for digital identity and explores how we might make progress in solving some the key problems.

9:00 Taking friction out to the economy- making digital identity work at global scale

Canada has made significant strides in advancing its digital identity infrastructure in the last decade. It started with an authentication service supported by the national banks for online government services. As the service has gained traction other online players in the economy have joined in to make the service work even better by a simple and trustworthy way to register for services with low cost and high integrity for business. Key ingredients in this success include Privacy by Design and Blockchain.

Mobile Driver Licences…in time, perhaps the most commonly used ID on Earth
  • A brief history of DLs around the world
  • A look into where the standardization started and has been working towards
  • Solving the ‘pain-points’ we have due to our reliance on physical documents (memorization of myriad of variants in circulation at any given time, binding of holder to credential, protection of information)
  • Managing and understanding the paradigm shift in a move from physical to electronic credentials
  • Potential is almost limitless with applications that could benefit from a higher trusted credential…what the future might look like.

Get a warrant: we can and must have both privacy and security, not one to the exclusion of the other

  • Abandon zero-sum, either/or, win/lose pursuits;
  • Privacy forms the foundation of our freedom: if you value freedom, then you value privacy. Don't let it be "traded away"
Ann Cavoukian , Distinguished Expert in Residence, Privacy by Design Centre & Three-Term Commissioner, Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (Canada)
Launch of the mobile drivers' licence in Iowa 
  • The need (and opportunity) for jurisdictional motor vehicle administrators to embrace their role as a central source of identity management, and not just driving privilege.
  • The recognition that our higher role is to foster mobility and accessibility, and that identity is a key element to both.
  • The connection between mobile credentialing and better mobility and accessibility – the ability to move beyond what you see to a an active identity profile that we can bind to the customer and that can be verified and authenticated in real time opens broad opportunities for public and private transactions that have greater integrity and that are more convenient and effective.
  • The obstacles jurisdictions face in being early adopters and the need for collaboration (and not competition) among jurisdictions -- success will hinge on interoperability standards and that cross jurisdictional lines (not just nationally but internationally) so we need many jurisdictions involved and engaged, to not only drive the standards that will avoid jurisdiction or vendor specific solutions, but to make the case for end users (and device makers) to invest in the architecture that will allow customers to consistently rely on their mobile credential wherever they go.
  • A recommendation to adopt and early and visual public marketing plan that engages internal and external stakeholders. Widespread interest won’t let you develop in isolation and wait until you’re ready to launch, and (absent a compelling vision to compare to) an inability to imagine the credential as something other than something you see will foster misunderstanding and skepticism that can undermine your effort.
Mark Lowe,   Director,  Iowa Department of Transportation (USA)
