Members of the team participated as panelists in the Trust in the Information Society conference in Leon, Spain (February 10-11, 2010).  One of the sessions focused on identity as a collaborative foundation, by Microsoft’s distinguished engineer, Kim Cameron. A webcast of the conference is also available.


One of the notable conclusions published as an outcome of the conference included:


Collaboration between all stakeholders to develop a European Framework for electronic Identity management (eID) in full respect of privacy and the protection of personal data. Enabling "just enough" disclosure of personal data through minimal data disclosure technology, and making profile aggregation difficult at European-wide and national level through proper processes between relying parties and identity service providers (e.g. by use of attribute based certificates and their strong credentials that reduce the needs for on-line checking of claims presented to relying parties. An eID Framework must assure management of identity across society, including in e-Government, e-Health and the private sector (e.g. banking and web applications) and be applicable, no matter where a specific eID was issued, thus ensuring reasonable synergies to reach cost effectiveness and take-up.
