Episode #19

In this episode of The Story Of Digital Identity (logo) I interview Robin Wilton, Corporate Architect in Sun Microsystem’s CTO Team.

Robin’s post titled, “Is ‘user-centricity’ the answer to identity fraud?” was the impetus for my interview with him because it addressed some issues related to user-centric identity and various types of liability I’ve been thinking about with regard to identity providers (those entities in the user-centric “model” that will issue claims on behalf of the individuals who use their services).

In this interview Robin describes his job at Sun and we talk in some detail about the concept of user-centricity and how in many contexts intermediaries will necessarily play a role despite end-user control of their “digital identity.”
