Attributes - The New Frontier
Time 04/29/09 01:15PM-02:30PM
With the widening use of federated identity and its ability to pass attributes from an identity provider to a relying party, attention is now turning to frontiers in attribute issues. In the first presentation, David Chadwick will explore the critical area of attribute aggregation, a requirement of many use cases where a relying party needs information from multiple attribute authorities, and demonstrate his implementation of a Linking Service which allows users to aggregate their attributes in private without revealing their various identities to third parties. In the second half, Ken Klingenstein will discuss other emergent areas in this nascent attribute ecosystem, including federated attributes (with common semantics), managing sources of authority, government schema, rich attribute queries, etc.
