OECD Workshop on Digital Identity Management (IDM) - Trondheim, Norway, 8-9 May 2007


Return to > Information security and privacy > Digital Identity Management and Electronic Authentication


Agenda - Speakers Bio Book - Workshop Summary


Identity management (IDM) in the online environment is seen as a key enabler for electronic business and electronic government because it facilitates the expansion of information systems and network boundaries and increases access points. It is also an issue at the cross-roads of information security, privacy and trust.

This workshop, organised by the OECD and hosted by the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research and Ministry of Government Administration and Reform, brought together experts from government, industry and civil society to explore the main information security and privacy issues surrounding digital identity management.

The discussion on day one explored illustrative examples of IDM frameworks, solutions and applications. The second day focused on the needs of, and challenges faced by, private and public bodies as users of IDM, as well as possible responses to those challenges. The broader implications of IDM for individuals’ ability to control the digital representation of their identity and its potential uses were a focus throughout the workshop.
