On the 30th of September to 3rd of October Oasis will hold Open Standard Forum near London. For more information see the official website.
I'm also excited about listening to the other speakers at the event, covering many different areas of identity- and key management.
I have been accepted as a speaker and will talk about XML protocol interfaces to a PKI. I will mostly use case studies to kind of outline the requirements of an XML protocol. The most detailed case study is the Hardtoken Management Framework developed by Philip in cooperation with the Swedish police (www.hardtokenmgmt.org). The hardtoken management framework is the basis for the smart card management at the Swedish police and uses Webservice interface to communicate with the PKI.
On interesting topic, where we might receive some feedback(?), is what happened to XKMS and if there is any future efforts in that direction. Also looking more into the future we may see a merging of symmetric key management (EKMI) and PKI management.
Maybe we'll see some standardization in this area?
If you have your ways pass London you should join.
