  Identity in the Browser
  24-25 May 2011
  Mountain View, CA, USA
  Hosted by the Mozilla Foundation

As the Web becomes increasingly a focal point for economic and social activity, there is an urgent need for trustworthy, widely-applicable digital identity management.  This includes the need for authentication and authorization to work across multiple web-sites, enterprises, devices, and browsers in a uniform and easy-to-use manner. For critical enterprise activity, effective government engagement, and sensitive social information accessed over the Web, a higher level of identity assurance, privacy protection, and security is required, and client-side technologies like browsers have an important role to play. To address many of these issues, digital identity should become a core part of Web architecture, enabled by a combination of server and client-side solutions. Achieving this vision, however, requires addressing numerous technical, operational, policy, and legal issues. This workshop's purpose is to consider how the intersection of those issues with the use of browser technology can lead to this vision.

Topics for discussion include, but are not limited to:

  * mutually beneficial relationships between server-side and client-side identity approaches
  * novel and existing approaches toward digital identity on the Web that could be integrated across browsers
  * the relationship between the Web and enterprise identity
