What You Should Not Miss at TechEX
The 2017 Internet2 Technology Exchange is right around the corner (October 15–19 in San Francisco). Those involved in the Trust and Identity track will have opportunities to help frame the future of Internet2 Trust and Identity, pose questions or concerns that would benefit from community discussion and input, and hear case studies from U.S. and international colleagues.
Here are some of the highlights.
Help plan the future of Trust and Identity – The Trust and Identity track opens Monday morning with a session about what trust and identity services will look like a year from now—or what they should look like. Kevin Morooney, Internet2’s vice president for trust and identity, will kick things off, then we’ll hear from three different perspectives: research (Chris Whalen, NIAID/NIH), international (Klaas Wierenga, GEANT), and campus (John O’Keefe, Lafayette College). We’ll follow that up with a lunchtime community BoF where you can add your feedback and comments.
Deep Dives into Identity Topics – Tuesday morning brings in-depth sessions—at twice the length of a normal track session—to provide a broad perspective on four topics: Campus IAM, TIER, DevOps approaches, and External Identities. After lunch on Tuesday, community working groups from across the trust and identity spectrum will hold open meetings and BoFs. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about the topics and goals of eight different working groups throughout the afternoon.
Unconference Your Way to New Solutions – Wednesday is the kick-off of ACAMP, our day-and-a-half of unconference sessions. Attendees will gather Wednesday morning to throw out topics and set the agenda for a total of 30 breakout sessions during the day. ACAMP is a time to discuss issues of community impact or concern, and determine if a common approach might be of use. We’ll rinse and repeat on Thursday morning, with an abbreviated agenda-setting for another 10 break-out sessions, then a wrap-up which will end just prior to noon.
Complete details on TechEx are available on the meeting website and you can filter by track to see all of the trust/identity sessions in sequence. We hope you can join us.
