11:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Each Breakout Session is aligned with a federation challenge identified by the ATARC IdM Working Group.
Session #1 – Why Would Anyone in Government Build a Service to be Trusted?
The lack of an adopted and agreed to Trust Framework to enable agencies to trust more than a point-to-point assertion of identity.
Security Project Manager, Internal Revenue Services
U.S. Federal Chief Technology Officer, Ping Identity
Session #2 – ICAM is Trapped in Time
The existence and overreliance on legacy systems that became the de facto backbone of many ICAM systems but was never truly intended for that purpose.
HHS HSPD-12 IT Program Manager, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (invited)
Director, Federal Solutions Engineering, Okta
Session #3 – No Agency Owns the Federal ICAM Function
The U.S. Government ICAM story is rooted in Credential Management. The shift to centralized credential management as supported in FIPS-201-3 will require each agency to maintain its own Identity Provider (IdP). The lack of direction for how to manage agency-level IdPs with a centralized credentialing system could allow for federated users to have too much or too little access to needed resources.
IT Specialist, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency
Vice President, Solution Architecture, Yubico
Session #4 – There are No Standardized Cost Models for ICAM
ICAM is not necessarily a “first class” citizen when it comes to being considered critical infrastructure that creates funding and implementation challenges.
Director, Identity Credential and Access Management, Office of Information Technology Category, Federal Acquisition Service, U.S. General Services Administration (invited)
Director of Public Sector Sales Engineering, Ping Identity
Session #5 – We Build to Policy and Access to Data — Not Standards and Profiles
The lack of standards to support multipoint Identity Federation has created various islands of misfit identity silos across the government.
Principal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Engineer, MITRE
IdAM Technical Oversight Lead, Booz Allen Hamilton
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
