A. Workshop Purpose    (3W7G)

This workshop will build on the implications of Preparedness as a dimension of the National Response Framework, for Identity Management (persons and objects) within a global context, and facilitate engagement by multiple communities advancing emergent national readiness including: identity management, enterprise architecture, disaster preparedness and response, cyber-security, ontology, modeling & simulation, and international digital standards.    (3WD9)

The workshop is responsive to expressed interest from Federal representatives to better appreciate identity management potentials and realities in light of ongoing research, standards development, and on-going national and global implementation strategies. This includes national and international groups working to develop standards across domains, such as Shibboleth, Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0), OpenID, Privacy, and authorization management. This broad and comprehensive context for shared understanding is of keen interest to the Coordinating Groups of the Subcommittee on Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) including: Large Scale Networking, High Confidence Software and Systems, Human-Computer Interaction and Information Management, FASTER, Cyber-Security Information Assurance, and Social-Economic and Workforce Implications of IT.    (3WAE)

The workshop will build on the National Preparedness scenario introduced at the Feb. 19, 2008 Collaborative Expedition workshop to facilitate shared understanding among multiple communities overcoming "domain" insularity to advance broad public service goals associated with national preparedness and innovation.    (3WDD)

The workshop will highlight emerging organizing principles that include:    (3WD3)

In addition, the workshop will highlight priority areas for broad-based returns such as definition of US person with appropriate attributes as object classes (i.e. citizenship, customization from W3C Web Accessibility Initiative) and an assessment of readiness related equipment and appropriate attributes.    (3WDC)

This workshop will build on the Collaborative Expedition workshop on Identity Management workshop held on February 27, 2007 which included presentations on SAML, XACML, XRI, XDI, I-Name and Open-ID.    (3W7K)

In addition, the workshop will build on the March 4-6, 2008, Seventh Symposium on Identity and Trust on the Internet (IDTRust 2008) held at NIST.    (3W7L)

It is probably true quite generally that in the history of human thinking the most fruitful developments frequently take place at those points where two different lines of thought meet. These lines may have their roots in quite different parts of human culture, in different times or different cultural environments or different religious traditions: hence if they actually meet, that is, if they are at least so much related to each other that a real interaction can take place, then one may hope that new and interesting developments may follow.

1. The Identity Management Landscape    (3WAS)

F. Workshop Series Background    (3W91)

Purpose and Audience: GSA's USA Services/ Intergovernmental leads monthly Collaborative Expedition workshops to advance the quality of citizen-government dialogue and collaborations at the crossroads of intergovernmental initiatives, Communities of Practice, Federal IT research and IT user agencies. The workshops seek to advance collaborative innovations in government and community services such as emergency preparedness, environmental monitoring, healthcare and law enforcement.    (3W92)

The workshops serve individuals from government, business, and non-government organizations to practice an emerging societal form, Intergovernmental Communities of Practice (CoPs), in light of the Citizen-Centric Government goal of the President’s Management Agenda and the Public Information Access provisions of the E-government Act of 2002.    (3W93)

Each workshop organizes participation around a common purpose, larger than any institution, including government. By learning how to appreciate multiple perspectives around potentials and realities of this larger “purpose”, subsequent actions by individuals representing many forms of expertise, can be better expressed in their home and collaborative settings. By centering around people and the "whole system" challenges they organize around, IT design and development processes can mature with less risk and greater national yield of breakthrough performance.    (3W94)

Joint workshop sponsors in addition to GSA, include the Emerging Technology Subcommittee of the Architecture and Infrastructure Committee and Coordinating Groups of the Subcommittee on Networking and Information Technology Research and Development, including, Social, Economic and Workforce Implications of IT and IT Workforce Development CG, High End Computing CG, High Confidence Software and Systems CG, Software Design and Productivity CG, and Human-Computer Interaction and Information Management CG. These organizations value this “frontier outpost” to open up quality conversations, augmented by information technology, to leverage the collaborative capacity of united, but diverse sectors of society, seeking to discover, frame, and act on national potentials.    (3W95)
