An Open Discussion on Federating Identity Data

Sponsored by

There is an immense amount of identity data that is being accumulated in various segmented “data warehouses” across the telecom industry.  It is Ribbon’s belief that this pool of identity data has tremendous value for robocall and fraud mitigation if it can be effectively and securely shared.  We  think this is the right time to start the discussion on how it is possible to federate this data while also assuring the security and privacy of user identity, irrespective of network domain, modality, or provider.

Just as the definition of STIR drew upon experiences and solutions in the IP data domain by the use of certificates and public/private keys for signing and verifying caller identity, we believe there is much to learn from the precedence in the cyber security domain where there are open, community driven initiatives to share cyber threat data.

Please join us in this session to discuss:

  • Methods to access federated identity data
  • Data model options
  • Potential underlying technologies
  • Interworking with STIR/SHAKEN and SIP protocol
  • GDPR / anonymization concerns
