GTISC Industry Leaders Series presents Tony Rutkowski, Vice President for Regulatory Affairs, VeriSign, Inc.

"Next Gen Identity Management for Networks: Old Problems, New Challenges"

This lecture describes a significant initiative of almost non-stop global activity over the past year that brought together a diverse array of people and communities to explore and map the uncharted new universe of Identity Management. The "map" consists of four reports that attempt
to structure a Next Generation Identity Management universe and chart a destiny through a set of requirements and framework(s).

The objective of this endeavor falls into the category of "grand challenge," but is an essential one for some reasonable level of cybersecurity as well as a broad ensemble of government, business, and consumer needs, including the holy grail of nomadicity - anytime,
anywhere, using any device, by anyone.

This lecture also poses a potentially controversial implementation hypothesis that reaches back more than a hundred years to early open nomadic radio-based network infrastructures, and suggests that similar regulatory and global cooperative agreements serve as useful models.

Mr Rutkowski is Vice-President for Regulatory Affairs and Standards at VeriSign, Inc. A current major part of his current work includes Identity Management and security standards and law. He participates extensively in international standards and other bodies dealing with IdM
and security. He is a prominent engineer-lawyer whose career has spanned more than 40 years in industry and government in the U.S. and abroad. He has enjoyed commercial business positions with SAIC Network Solutions, General Magic, Sprint International, Horizon House, Pan American Engineering, General Electric, and Evening News Association; government and elected positions with the Federal Communications
Commission, the International Telecommunication Union, and Cape Canaveral City Council; and educational positions with NY Law School, MIT, and the Internet Society.
