Open Networks for Open Government: Identity in the Web 3.0 Framework
Friday - 9/4/2009, 2:07pm EDT
The move to adopt Open Trust Networks by the federal government reflects a priority of the Obama Administration to make the federal government more accessible to citizens, lower costs, and to foster greater interoperability and cross-agency cooperation. Many see this new Identity-driven move to build open federations based on trust relationships as a critical step toward a more open, efficient government. To support this vision, the government is defining how these Identity trust relationship will be structured and certifying Trusted Identity Providers as means to secure data, maintain privacy, and prevent identity-theft.
The inaugural step toward this new IT strategy will occur with the introduction of the first Trust Framework supporting services that match OMB's Level One of Identity. Achieving the benefits from this move will depend on many factors:
- How will Personal Identity Information be protected?
- Which services can be enabled immediately and how will PIV cards support this effort?
- Who are the trust authorities to certify an Identity as authentic and authorized?
- Who will monitor compliance with standards, security, and privacy guidelines?
The advent of Trust Frameworks and Open Trust Networks promises to transform the relationship between the federal government and citizens, as well as how government departments, the public, and the private sector interact. Identity will be at the center of creating the Trust relationships necessary to make this work.
Our Distinguished Speaker Panelists represent the key government and private sector leaders in this transformation. Booz Allen Hamilton is honored to present their thoughts, opinions and insights on the most recent initiatives, policy directions, and the implications of the recent Gov 2.0 conference.
