The Internet Society is pleased to co-chair a “Workshop on Identity in the Browser” with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to be held in Mountain View, California in May.
As the Web increasingly becomes a focal point for economic and social activity, there is an urgent need for it to support trustworthy, widely-applicable digital identity management.
It is critical that the Web support a high level of identity assurance, privacy protection, and security. To address this requirement, client-side technologies like browsers play an integral role. This is true for enterprise activity, effective government engagement, and even social information accessed over the Web.
To address these issues, the Internet Society is co-chairing with the W3C a “Workshop on Identity in the Browser” to take place 24-25 May, 2011 hosted by the Mozilla Foundation Mountain View, California. Workshop participants will investigate strategies to facilitate the development and deployment of improved identity authentication and authorization technologies across the Web. Also included in the workshop will be explorations into the operational, policy, and legal issues that must be addressed by the solutions.
Anyone may participate and there is no fee to participate. All participants are, however, required to submit a position paper by 22 April.
