Worldwide Presentations on LIGHTest

The Open Identity Exchange (OIX) had another busy few months travelling around the world to present LIGHTest at conferences and events. In May, OIX and USTUTT presented LIGHTest in the context of identity frameworks and how these interoperate for seamless customer experiences, at the first K(NO)W Conference in Washington. This was followed by the second International Identity Management Law and Policy meeting co-hosted by the OIX and the World Bank. At this event, OIX presented LIGHTest in the context of trust frameworks and standards, with USTUTT introducing LIGHTest to this group of influential, global policy and legal decision makers from both the public and private sector.

Whilst in Washington, OIX took advantage of consortium experts from time.lex and USTUTT to hold the first International LIGHTest forum meeting. This group of global experts, mainly outside of Europe, met for a deep dive into LIGHTest, with technical, business and legal presentations from USTUTT and legal presentations from time. lex. This more intimate meeting had ample time, allowing for bi-directional curation of valuable feedback to and from the LIGHTest consortium partners as to global concerns and issues.


In June, OIX presented LIGHTest at the IDM Whitehall Media conference in London to an audience of 350 IAM specialists, as well as attending the renowned Cloud Identity Summit in Chicago, participating in a panel to discuss trust frameworks and their critical role in governing identity systems and allocating liability; around 1,400 delegates attended this event.
