The unconference is using an agile format with participant-driven contents, covering the attendees’ current interests. TIIME’s format has been designed for solving trust and identity issues, developing and sharing new concepts. If you are looking for a substantial discussion on this subject it is likely that you will meet the right people here!

Patrick Curry: “Business Cases for Trust & Identity Federation”

Ralf Schlatterbeck, Thomas Warwaris: “From Trust to (P)ownership. Establishing Trust for IoT and User Devices.”

The IoT is based on constrained devices with limited crypto capabilities. The requirement to secure device to device communication is a fundamental challenge. This talk presents some concepts and their pitfalls. Not only in IoT, but with any user devices, the trust assumptions require scrutiny. Trusted computing and DRM (digital restriction management) include trust relationships to different stakeholders who might not be the user.
