    Creating an open-source IAM wiki with Open-Measure Founder, David Doret – Podcast Episode 45

    In episode 45, Oscar talks to David Doret about Open-Measure – the comprehensive, open-source Identity and Access Management (IAM) resource that he created as a not-for-profit initiative. The conversation explores how and why Open Measure came to be – and how anyone working with IAM, in any capacity, can get involved.



    "IAM is so transversal within the organisation – we need to work with HR, IT, security, the full workforce, top management, customers – with everyone, basically."



    David Doret is a cybersecurity and IAM veteran. He worked in advisory services helping numerous organisations strengthen their security posture, held twice the position of CISO and specialised in IAM and risk management. He founded and runs the Open-Measure wiki for IAM professionals. He holds an MSc in Information Security, is certified GRCP, PMP, Lean 6 Sigma Green Belt, CISSP, ISO 27001 Lead Auditor and loves studying MOOCs as a hobby. He is currently Deputy CISO and IAM Manager at BNP Paribas.

    Is digital identity for citizens a commodity? with Colin Wallis & Charlie Harry Smith – Podcast Episode 44

    Is digital identity for citizens a commodity? with Colin Wallis & Charlie Harry Smith – Podcast Episode 44

    In episode 44, we shake things up with a fireside chat format. Colin and Charlie begin by discussing: "Is digital identity for citizens a commodity?". From their different backgrounds in identity – Colin's tenure as Kantara's Executive Director, and Charlie's work as a political theorist – they explore multiple considerations, including user experience, the role of private organisations in shaping citizen (or resident) identity and how to ensure adoption. As both are currently UK-based, they use the UK government's historical and future plans around digital identity for context, as well as examples from other countries like New Zealand and the US.



    "[Digital identity] can be delivered effectively, securely, and in a way that's lovely to look at as well. That's an exciting thing and it's an exciting time to be in this industry."



    Colin Wallis is the Executive Director of the Kantara Initiative – the international industry association globally acknowledged for its ethos of no barriers to participation. Kantara is most recognised as a Trust Framework Operator of conformity assessment and Trust Marked schemes for digital Identity, Credential and Consent Management Service Providers.

    Colin develops and executes the Kantara Initiative’s strategic plan in concert with the Board and Leadership Council, driving the organisation forward on a broad front with the financial support of private, public sector and individual members from every region of the world and the assistance of a dedicated band of expert volunteers. Colin’s work has been recognised by being named one of the Top 100 Influencers in Identity by independent research company One World Identity.



    Find Colin on LinkedIn and on Twitter @KantaraColin. Find out more about Kantara at kantarainitiative.org and www.kantarainitiative.eu. This is Colin's second appearance on LTADI – find his first episode at www.ubisecure.com/podcast/kantara-colin-wallis/.



    Charlie Harry Smith is a political theorist pursuing a doctoral degree at the Oxford Internet Institute, part of the University of Oxford. In particular, his research considers the normative and theoretical issues surrounding digital governments and the ongoing development of federated identity systems in the UK.



    Alongside his research, Charlie regularly consults on digital identity projects. He handles social media monitoring for the Open Identity Exchange and, most recently, has worked with the Digital Equity Association to bring the SMART Africa Trust Alliance – an ambitious cross-continental federated identity scheme – to the pilot project stage.

    The power of mobile for digital identity inclusion with GSMA’s Erdoo Yongo – Podcast Episode 43

    The power of mobile for digital identity inclusion with GSMA’s Erdoo Yongo – Podcast Episode 43

    In episode 43, Oscar and Erdoo explore the importance of mobile technology to digital identity, and what that means for inclusion in schemes that rely on identification of individuals. From her background in policy and advocacy at GSMA, Erdoo gives specific examples of mobile playing a role in the development of identity – identity enrolment in Nigeria, birth registration in Pakistan, health records in Kenya, and cash value assistance in Zambia. She also explores the challenges preventing mobile from playing a role in the development of digital identity ecosystems.



    "There are a range of opportunities for mobile technology and mobile operators to play a pivotal role in the development of digital identity ecosystems."



    Erdoo joined GSMA in 2017. She is a Policy and Advocacy Manager across the Digital Identity (DI) and Mobile for Humanitarian Innovation (M4H) teams. As part of the advocacy and policy team, she is working to create an enabling policy environment for mobile operators to ensure that mobile can be used to support identification of underserved populations and as a platform to deliver humanitarian assistance. Erdoo is thus working with mobile operators, development partners and humanitarian organisations to uncover and resolve policy and regulatory barriers they face in providing mobile services to users.



    She also leads GSMA’s research on mandatory SIM registration, exploring its relation to other key indicators in order to establish key trends that inform the work of the DI and M4H advocacy and policy streams.



    Erdoo delivers the ‘Digital identity for the underserved and the role of mobile’ Capacity Building course to regulators and policymakers and represents GSMA at a broad range of events.



    Find Erdoo on LinkedIn.

    Evaluating face recognition biometrics with Mei Ngan, NIST – Podcast Episode 42

    Evaluating face recognition biometrics with Mei Ngan, NIST – Podcast Episode 42

    In episode 42, we explore Mei's work at NIST evaluating face recognition biometrics with the Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT), how accurate facial recognition actually is, and the effects of different variables on the FRVT – face masks (motivated by the pandemic), face morphing as a current FR vulnerability for identity credentials, demographic differentials, and twins – “the forgotten demographic”.



    "[Face recognition] technology really has come a long way, especially when you only have half the face available to do recognition with. But with that said though, there still remains certain limitations to the technology – such as being able to differentiate between identical twins, demographic differentials and extremely poor-quality photos."



    Mei Ngan is a scientist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Her research focus includes evaluation of face recognition and tattoo recognition technologies. Mei has authored and co-authored a number of technical publications, including the accuracy of face recognition with face masks, evaluation of face morphing detection algorithms, demographic effects in face recognition, performance of facial age and gender estimation algorithms, and publication of a seminal open tattoo database for developing tattoo recognition research, which she received the Special Contribution Award for at the 2015 IEEE International Conference on Identity, Security and Behavior Analysis (ISBA).



    Mei was awarded the Department of Commerce Gold Medal Award in 2020 and was a recipient of the 2020 Women in Biometrics Award, a globally recognised award honouring innovative women in the biometrics field.
