Re: NFC
I agree that NFC has potential to make this much easier for users to enrol and recover for both services and devices. NFC is already widely used for payment cards around the globe and more and more consumer electronics are coming with reader technology.

The Province of British Columbia in Canada has included a contactless NFC chip based on payment technolgy in their newest generation Services Card. It will transform how BC serves online and in person for citizens in there. It will also one day faciliate citizens accessing services outside BC. Things like opening a bank account line, or being able to electronically sign a letter of permission for a child to go on a school trip, or even eVoting.

Re: interesting idea
We need to find a common protocol to avoid problems that would come with it. One of the reason Internet is internet today is because it has a common protocol: TCP/IP.

NFC
 

If we can make NFC common and secure that can helps us to authenticate and authorize users in an automated and secure way. For it to work it needs to be common protocol that is being utilized by different systems.

Re: interesting idea
Thanks Marilyn

 

There are two examples for this approach - one I mentioned in the previous comment is in use by the Government of Canada. The second example is in the process of launching with USPS called FCCX (federal cloud credential exchange). The interop and standards continue to develop and evolve thru Kantara and OIX. 

FIDO is going to be important as dynamic authentication overtakes passwords as the primary authentication methodology. FIDO will be like bluetooth whereby when users buy personal devices at the store (mobile, tablet, laptop etc) they will be able to bring them home and pair them with their webservices to anchor their digital identity.

interesting idea
This is a very interesting idea, Andre. Is there more to it than a theoretical model? That is, is anone actively working to build such a system or pull together an alliance (such as FIDO) to generate a consensus on issues like interoperability, standards etc. to make it work?

Re: Identity Management
Yes, banks and wireless carriers are in a great position to serve the consumer to access many online destinations - much like credit cards help consumers interact with merchants today. It is important to recognize that at least two distinct services are required - one for authentication and one for identity services - auth is required for sure, identity services can be provided by banks or other providers in the network. Credential switching from bank1 to bank2 is supported in the Canadian model - www.securekeyconcierge.com - where Canadians can use banks to access public sector services of all kinds. As to mergers, it will be a biz decision whether to merge the brands or not, but to the extent they do merge brands, the credential switching model above could facilitate it. NACHA is very well situated to help run such a network, but it is important to keep the credentials with the proper providers.

Identity Management
So - are you saying that the financial institution would be involved with iDm? OK, but what happens when the member/customer wants to switch? And how would you propose handling mergers? Would the identity repository be owned by a consortioum of FIs? Perhaps an indirect entity a 'la NACHA? Just curious what you have in mind.
