Wider’s High Assurance Digital Identity Maturity Model
High Assurance Digital Identity for #IoT (and #IoMT) doesn’t just happen. You have to build distinctive competence within your enterprise and without. This is our first draft.
High Assurance Digital Identity in Healthcare
We know we need High Assurance Digital Identity. But we don’t know what this is, exactly. However, to realize the full potential of Internet of Things (IoT) investment we must approach the Identity of Things (IDoT) differently than what we are accustomed to for the identity of persons. We believe the true value of IoT…
Quick and Dirty Maturity Modeling
Would you like to be better? To be great with your Identity of Things? Wider Team talked with experts and friends about this for the last year. We grouped kinds of competencies and capabilities. And we’ve even seen some “walk before you run” dependencies. So, maturity models, right? Specifics about our model are another post.…
Wasting your IoT Data?
HADI (High Assurance Digital Identity) impair the ability of healthcare and pharmaceutical research to: establish provenance of data, secure data handoffs across systems and organizations, tie data to a patient, and orchestrate data from multiple devices in an encounter into a common view.
call for comment on NIST draft: Establishing Confidence in IoT Device Security: How do we get there?
Last week’s NIST cybersecurity white paper came across our desk and we’re reading up. Establishing Confidence in IoT Device Security: How do we get there? The abstract model from Figure 1 is useful for organizing work from the vantage of stakeholders. Aspects: functional, business, human, timing, data, boundaries, composition, lifecycles, and communication. Concerns: safety, privacy,…
Why is IoT arriving slower in some industries? Identity and other blockers
Our team talks with many digital identity and IoT professionals each week. One of our Michaels remarked that diffusion of innovation and propagation of both IoT and digital identity seems uneven. Three examples of uneven IoT and Identity of Things adoption… 🏭 Medical device factories IDoT is already pervasive within high assurance settings such as…
IIW topics that excite us
We talked about this week’s Internet Identity Workshop (#32!) on one of our team calls. What sessions would make us jump out of our seat? Our short list. Rugged identity for IoT. Nearly all identity systems break with power outages, network interruptions, really long latency, really low bandwidth, and device tampering. HADI maturity models. How…
The Wider Team Blog
Digital identity is about trust. Everyone and everything trusts (and distrusts) everyone else. It’s what makes people and cyberspaces and bodies work together. We all try to do better, using great tools and practices. So let’s explore about how ubiquitous intelligence, pervading the worlds around and within us, build and share trust through identity and…
By 2030, Captcha for AI
Ask any sysadmin and they’ll tell you humans are the easiest way to penetrate a network. Been that way long before Kevin Mitnick. In 2020, deep fake tools and GPT-3 are convincing. How soon before they defeat prove-you’re-human tests? Then, how long before they convincingly replicate the behavior of trusted network devices? WiderPoV: Ten years…
