About Joachim’s Talk
Why open identity? One characteristic of today’s identity systems is that they are neither capable nor designed to allow communication amongst all of them. This talk intends to give us a better idea why it would be in all our best interest to support an open identity system that caters the needs of a global network. We also will look at how such a system could look like, and which are key design requirements.
