Identity Paramount for Mobility

As the mobile Internet arrives, Identity becomes paramount, points out Andrew Jaquity, Security Program Manager, Yankee Group, in a compelling article in last Friday's RCR Wireless News. A few of his statements impressed me:

"As the mobile Internet becomes a reality, it will pull identity issues along with it. Users will take their identities (user names and passwords, personal attributes, location) with them on their phones. Vendors can significantly ease user pain by working together."

"Mobile operators should add identity management features to give users more control. "

"Security-software vendors should ally themselves with trusted parties, rather than compete with them."

About

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.

Thanks for stopping by.
