Your Identity Please: Identity Theft and Identity Management in the 21st
Century will be held November 2-3, 2006, at the University of Toronto,
Canada. This is the seventh annual privacy and security conference jointly
organized by the Privacy Centre of Excellence (Bell Security Solutions
Inc.), the Centre for Innovation Law and Policy (University of Toronto),
and the Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research (University of Waterloo).
This year's workshop will explore the many aspects of identity theft and
identity management within the context of security and privacy. Identity
management was once a mixture of easy single sign-on and PKI guarantees
that could truly identify a person or entity and bind their transactions.
However, electronic identity and identity management has reached a turning
point. Both public and private sector organizations see, with ever
increasing clarity, the need to answer key questions such as:
Answers to these types of questions will determine the use and adoption
of proffered identity management solutions. Such answers as well as old and
newly formulated solutions will be explored and assessed against principles
of security and privacy.
- What is the accepted middle ground between a government or business
decree for the use, creation or destruction of a person's digital identity
and that person's consent to be identity managed?
- How many digital identities should a person have? One national ID,
a globally unique ID or many?
- Is law enforcement challenged by identifying persons or uncovering
networks of association?
- What are the inherent policy implications of specific technical
- What underlying identity management capabilities allow for stealing
- Are current fair information practices and privacy legislation
sufficient to provide privacy safeguards?
A strong focus on identity theft in relation to Identity Management will
also be a highlight of this year's workshop. Identity theft continues to be
one of the least understood phenomena of our digital age. Focus for
solutions seems to default to personal vigilance. This workshop will
explore the architecture of identity theft, highlight some of the leading
edge research in this space and provide opportunities to discuss the
solutions that directly relate to privacy, security and identity
As well, this year's event will have an expanded series of 'salons' that
will be modeled on the great salons of turn-of-the-century Paris. These
salons will debut the recent research and solutions of the International
Security Trust & Privacy Alliance, Bell Security Solutions' Privacy Centre
for Excellence, Microsoft and many more.
The intended audience includes technology and security experts, CIOs,
senior technology executives, health professionals, cryptographers, engineers,
law enforcement, practitioners, academics, private sector leaders, privacy
experts, and students. Attendees may also be interested in the
Security and Trust 2006 conference which will be held from October 30
to November 1 in Markham.
