Internet Identity Workshop


The purpose of the Internet Identity Workshop workig group is to support face to face conversation about Internet-wide digital identity and it's implications. User-centric identity has been a topic of particular interest. We aim to support the whole marketplace, especially individuals contributing their voice in open inclusive conversation.


  • We support the community of people interested in digital identity coming together and meeting.
  • We use highly participatory processes for our meetings.
  • We partner with other events, organizations and companies to support open meetings around emerging topics in digital identity. The brand we use for these co-produced events is Identity Open Space.
  • Workshops are financially self-sustaining through user fees for event attendence and sponsorships.


We call together a design committee together from the community to help shape the design of the conference.
