Open Identity Summit 2014 focuses on identity management, cloud computing and data protection.
In the age of big data, industry 4.0 and cloud computing, IT security for enterprises and consumers is growing ever more important.
At the Open Identity Summit 2014, experts from these research fields will be joined by industry representatives with practical experience to present solutions for secure identity management and technologies designed to enhance data protection.
It is clear to see from recent data theft scandals, just how critical the subject IT security has already become for the business world. Robust identity management, in particular, plays a key role in the secure handling of data because it regulates who has access to what data – and how to ensure that those accessing the data really are who they claim to be.
This is of special concern when it comes to cloud computing. “For small companies, in particular, a server in the cloud can be much more secure than a proprietary network,” explains Dr. Heiko Rossnagel, who is responsible for the Open Identity Summit 2014 at Fraunhofer IAO.
Cloud computing is just one of the identity management topics that will be discussed at the Open Identity Summit from November 4 to 6, 2014. This forum will also consider legal and economic aspects, technologies that promote data protection, and open standards and interfaces.
By bringing together the viewpoints of both scientific experts and business practitioners, the summit can offer participants a holistic approach to these highly topical issues. The conference will kick off on the Tuesday with a SkIDentity project workshop.
The results of this project, which is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, show how to bridge the gap between secure electronic IDs and existing cloud computing infrastructure. During the workshop, participants will be presented with a variety of demonstrators and have an opportunity to talk with practitioners in these areas.
From Wednesday onward, the Open Identity Summit will offer both a series of scientific lectures and a range of case-study presentations from industry representatives on selected topics. An accompanying exhibition will enable the attendees to get to know the latest solutions for identity management and IT security.
All of this – in combination with keynote speeches, specialist presentations and a panel discussion – will give the participants an ample opportunity to network with experts, providers and users.
The attendance fee for the entire conference is €545; those attending only the first two days will pay €345. The deadline for registration is October 29, 2014, with a discount for those registering before October 6.

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...
Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.
A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
