OpenID Foundation Workshops provide technical insight and influence on current Internet identity standards. The workshops provide updates on all OpenID Foundation working groups as well the OpenID Certification Program.

 Please note  we’ve added a technology leaders discussion on key digital identity topics to the agenda. The goal is to encourage open discussion to help inform one another on security challenges in the identity ecosystem. As part of this expanded agenda, we’ll have a panel session during lunch led by OpenID Foundation Chairman, Nat Sakimura, with identity leader panelists from from member organizations that will be discussing the latest issues in digital identity.

Leading technologists from Verizon Media, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Yubico, Verizon and others will update key issues and discuss how they help meet social, enterprise and government Internet identity challenges.
