Hallo von München Deutschland! I’m at the 3rd annual European Identity Conference hosted by analyst firm Kuppinger-Cole & Partners, where last night, (along with several other vendors) Microsoft was recognized for Best Innovation. The award honors the Geneva project, specifically the framework for helping developers externalize access logic out of applications as a key improvement for future uses of federation.

On Tuesday, Martin Kuppinger kicked off the event with Top 10 Trends for 2009 as recapped by Jackson Shaw of Quest in his blog. After the opening keynote, it was a packed theatre session for Kim Cameron’s keynote “Claims: From Vision to Reality”.
Today should be pretty interactive as well, there are two Microsoft led demos and sessions. The first by Vittorio Bertocci—“Introduction to the Identity Metasystem and Claims” and the second by Ariel Gordon—“Using Claims to Convey Trust across Identity Boundaries”.
Check out this video centered around the way in which online trust can be created by transforming in-person identity proofing by parents and school administrators (such as using a child’s birth certificate) into digital trusted identities with information cards (CardSpace) to access a hosted application.
