European Identity & Cloud Conference 2012
17.04. – 20.04.2012, Munich, Germany


Just imagine how big the data quantity is which you need to organize your daily life. Insurance documents, your salary statements, banking details, your car´s service requirements, flight tickets, miles accounts, your relationships to online and offline vendors, and much more. How much time do you spend to aggregate all these information stored in so many locations which all are outside of your area of influence into something manageable?

Imagine that you had a personal, secure container system where all those data are automatically delivered to. Join this roundtable to meet the personal data pioneers and learn, how your company can take advantage in early adopting a business model based on this new ecosystem.

After attending this roundtable you will be able to:

  • Explain what personal life data management platforms are.
  • Explain the benefits of these to the individual and the business.
  • List the personal data privacy and trust issues related to these platforms.
  • Explain how personal life data management is related to electronic identities.
  • Explain the business models for personal life data management platforms.

This Roundtable qualifies for 3 Group Learning based CPEs.

Getting Personal: How can Each of us Live in a World of Corporate Silos — While also Building a World that Transcends them?!

Giving Individuals Control and Knowledge of their Personal Information held by Others – What are the Consequences?

Trust Frameworks – Internet Identity – Life Management Platforms

This roundtable will examine the role of socially-verified trust networks in the emergence of Internet identity and the personal data ecosystem.

The GINI-SA Project of the EU

GINI-SA is a Support Action for the EC which aims to analyse how a Personalized Identity Management (PIM) ecosystem in which individuals can manage their own digital identities and control the exchange of their identity information.

Under the GINI vision, individuals would manage their identities by means of an Individual Digital Identity (‘INDI’). An INDI can be described as a self-generated and self-managed digital identity, which is verifiable against one or more authoritative data sources.

Once created, users would have the ability to link their INDI with authoritative identity data maintained by both public- and private-sector entities. This data (or links thereto) could then be presented by the user towards relying parties. The user might wish to do this in order to meet transactional requirements (e.g., access control conditions set by a relying party) or underpin her trustworthiness towards others in various real life situations (e.g., verifying her education or presenting her skills when applying for a job).

The main objectives of GINI include:

1. Decoupling the activation of digital identities from the use of any particular identifier, and to support the use of multiple identities and/or identifiers;

2. Allowing users to exercise full control as to who is able to verify her identity and through which processes;

3. Enabling user control every phase of their digital identities’ life cycle (creation, change, management, revocation, etc.);

4. Identifying the ways and means through which a separation of identifiers and other identity attributes can be implemented in a user-friendly manner;

5. Outlining the main properties of a digital identity ecosystem that is efficient and yet capable of enabling maximum control of users over their digital identities;

6. Determining the prerequisites for operators so that a viable business model can be established.

GINI further examines the technological, legal, regulatory and privacy-related dimensions of the gap between the current state of the art and the vision for a functional INDI ecosystem beyond 2020. Detailed examinations of these gaps have been carried out in the individual work packages of the project. The following sections briefly introduce the major gaps identified thus far.

The aim of this presentation would therefore be to engage stakeholder representatives from the policy and industry domain and exchange views that will be taken into account for the formulation of the White Paper and Roadmap GINI will publish within 2012.
