About the HUBs
biometric ID:HUB is one of three simultaneous conference HUBs at connect:ID.

biometric ID:HUB will focus in-depth on this highly-topical and fast-moving area, but, where relevant, will bring together audiences to discuss cross-over issues with mobile ID:HUB and secure ID:HUB. Conference attendees can follow one conference HUB or mix and match tracks across the HUBs.


About
biometric ID:HUB
Biometric technologies are empowering countless organizations in their quest to authenticate customers, identify citizens, protect valuable assets, or enhance national security. Individual consumers, meanwhile, are becoming liberated through new biometric functionality now becoming standard on a wide range of mobile/smart devices.

From borders to banks, law enforcement toeducation - and many other applications beside - this conference will examine the new paradigm within which biometric technology now exists, where new solutions are offering capabilities almost unthinkable just a few years ago - and with them a number of potentially sensitive policy issues. Exponential improvements in technical capabilities, combined with an increasing societal willingness (with caveats) to embrace this technology, are leading to a future where biometrics - often in combination with a variety of other disruptive technologies - will make a transformative difference in the physical, mobile and digital domains.

 

The biometricID:HUB 2017 conference program will be available spring 2017

 

For information, the biometricID:HUB 2016 program is below:

Utilizing trusted identities in an online environment
- Identity is now an integral part of state and private sector business, online or in-person, and we all share a responsibility to innovate and bring the industry forward; 
- PII is a liability to be treated with extreme care, and thus the sharing and storage of PII needs to be kept to an absolute minimum and managed with the consent of individuals; 
- Thanks to two grant awards from NIST, MorphoTrust and a select group of partners including GA are exploring how to address the issues of high-trust identities needed to actively navigate an online environment while also securing specific transactions with identity authentication requirements controlled by individuals. 

  • Mark DiFraia, Senior Director of Market Development, MorphoTrust

- Citizen identity systems carry incredibly sensitive data, and therefore require strong privacy measures;
- Governments around the world are building systems to enhance the privacy and trustworthiness of citizen authentication.
