highlight of current activities 1
Highlight of Current Activities (1)

ATIS’ Packet Technologies and Systems Committee (PTSC) is actively developing the following IdM-related standards:

  • Identity Management (IdM)Framework for NGN
    • Deliverable: ATIS NGN IdM Framework Standard
      • Describes the fundamental concepts associated with NGN IdM (including threats and risks), defines NGN IdM entities, their roles, and the interactions among them within the IdM trust model, and specifies relationships between the IdM trust model and NGN interfaces for interoperability.
      • Completed as ATIS-1000035.2009
  • Identity Management (IdM)Use Cases for NGN
    • Deliverable: ATIS NGN IdM Use Cases Technical Report
      • Derives informative examples illustrating NGN IdM capabilities, functions and concepts. Use Cases will be used to derive and specify requirements.
      • Target Date: 4Q 2009
highlight of current activities 2
Highlight of Current Activities (2)
  • Identity Management (IdM)Requirements for NGN
    • Deliverable: ATIS NGN IdM Requirements Standard
      • Develops NGN IdM system requirements (based on the high-level trust model), security requirements, and interoperability requirements (based on Use Cases).
      • Target Date: 4Q 2009
  • Identity Management (IdM)Mechanisms for NGN
    • Deliverable: ATIS NGN IdM Mechanisms Standard
      • Describes the specific IdM mechanisms and suites of options that should be used to satisfy the ATIS IdM Requirements Standard.
      • Target Date: 1Q 2010
highlight of current activities 3
Highlight of Current Activities (3)
  • Identity Management (IdM)Use Cases and Requirements for Service Provider Identity (SPID)
    • Deliverable: ATIS IdM SPID Use Cases and Requirements Standard
      • Describes use cases to illustrate service scenarios where SPID is utilized, including assumptions on security, authentication, and discovery. SPID requirements are derived from these Use Cases.
      • Target Date: 1Q 2010
strategic direction
Strategic Direction
  • Leverage User-Centric solutions where possible, while identifying deltas to meet the needs of NGN providers
    • NGN service providers need to address both real-time and near-real time applications
    • Solution for real-time applications (e.g., exchange of IdM information for SIP communication sessions) would be distinct
  • Provide structured and standard means to discover and exchange identity information across network domains/federations
    • Bridge different technology dependent systems including existing network infrastructure systems (e.g., use of existing resources such as Line Information DataBase (LIDB) where appropriate)
    • Address new and emerging applications and services (e.g., IPTV and convergence)
    • Address unique security needs
  • Define value added use cases that will derive requirements

Un-trusted identity information as a result of migration to IP packet networks, emergence of new service providers (e.g., 3rd party providers) and other changes over the past decade (e.g., smart terminals, and open internet environment)

Historically, trusted information was provided by closed and fixed network environment operating under regulatory conditions

Resulting in operations, accounting, settlements, security and infrastructure protection problems

Overcoming silo solutions

Focusing on web services and electronic commerce

Available standards focus mainly on web services (e.g. OASIS, WS*, Liberty, SAML) and human identities

Vendor specific solutions/products (e.g., Microsoft Cardspace, PayPal, iNames)

Impact of Kantara Initiative needs to be assessed

No standard means for user control of Personal Identification Information (PII) and providing consent

No standard solution for interoperability/bridging

next steps actions
Next Steps/Actions

Continue to leverage User-Centric IdM solutions

Avoid duplication and redundancy

Leverage, use, enhance and adapt existing work and technology solutions where appropriate managed networks

Enhance and customize existing IP/web services capabilities and work of other industry groups (e.g., Liberty Alliance, Kantara, OASIS, 3GPP, ITU-T) as appropriate

Allow for the use of existing (e.g., LIDB) and new (e.g., IPTV) resources and capabilities

Continue to solicit IdM Use Case/Requirements inputs from all ATIS committees

Contribute ATIS IdM requirements and solutions to the ITU-T to obtain global solutions

identity management idm
Identity Management (IdM)

Identity Management (IdM) involves secure management of the identity life cycle and the exchange of identity information (e.g., identifiers, attributes and assertions) based on applicable policy of entities such as:


Organizations/federations/enterprise/service providers

Devices/network elements/systems

Objects (Application Process, Content, Data)

value added for ngn provider
Value Added for NGN Provider

Dynamic/automatic IdM means between multiple partners (e.g., end users, visited and home networks) reduce costs (compared to pair-wise arrangements)compared to pair-wise arrangements to

Establish service arrangements

Exchange identity information

Exchange policy information and enforce policy

Enabler of new applications and services (e.g., IPTV and convergence) including identity services

Leverage existing and expanding customer base

Common IdM infrastructure enables support of multiple applications and services


standard API and data schema for application design

multi-vendor/platforms solutions

inter-network/federations interoperability

Security protection of application services, network infrastructure and resources

value added for the user
Value Added for the User

Privacy/user control

Protection of Personal Identifiable Information [PPII]

Ability to control who is allowed access (i.e., providing consent) to personal information and how it is used

Ease of use and single sign-on / sign-off (multiple application/services across multiple service providers/federations)

Enabler of Social Networking

Security (e.g., confidence of transactions, and Identity (ID) Theft protection)

government motivations
Government Motivations

Infrastructure Protection (i.e., against cyber threats)

Protection of Global Interests (e.g., business and commerce)

Provide assurance capabilities (e.g., trusted assertions about digital identities [credentials, identifiers, attributes and reputations]) to enable

National Security/Emergency Preparedness (NS/EP)

Early Warning Services

Electronic Government (eGovernment) Services (e.g., web-based transactions)

Public Safety Services (e.g., Emergency 911 services)

Law Enforcement Services (e.g., Lawful Interceptions)

National/Homeland Security

Intelligence Services
