Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) 2006B 

Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) 2006B
What is User-Centric Identity?

User-centric identity starts with the individual, and his or her needs. It is about working relationships and services between individuals and retailers, employers, membership bodies, and organizations of any kind. It is not about a centralized solution, or anybody's silo. As such it solves different problems than the familiar ones of providing authentication and authorization services within a single organization, or federation between different organizations.
