International Workshop on Emerging Digital Identities

to be held in the conjunction with the 19th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security

July 30 – August 02, 2024

The identity environment has evolved into a complex ecosystem demanding seamless interoperability, stronger security measures, and user-centric experiences in an increasingly interconnected digital world. Addressing these difficulties necessitates collaboration among scholars and practitioners from diverse disciplines, establishing an interdisciplinary approach critical for shaping the future of identity management. EDId navigates a wide variety of security, privacy, and legal compliance issues, addressing technical issues like security and interoperability as well as legal and regulatory considerations like data protection and privacy.

Best Paper Award
All accepted and presented papers compete for the best paper awards, which will be announced at the workshop closing ceremony. The authors of the awarded papers will receive a certificate.

Keynote Speaker
Dr.-Ing. Torsten Lodderstedt is a Digital Identity Architect with more than 15 years experience in developing and running large scale consumer identity services. He currently works for the German Federal Agency for Disruptive Innovation (SPRIND) as project lead & lead architect of Germany’s EU Digital Identity Wallet project and also serves as technical advisor at the OpenWallet Foundation. Before that, he led the consumer identity team at Deutsche Telekom and was CTO & CPO of yes.com, an open banking scheme. Earlier in his career, he helped organizations in public, banking, and railway communication domains to implement highly-scalable and secure services.
Torsten is an open standards enthusiast and has contributed to a wide range of broadly adopted identity standards like OAuth and OpenID Connect as well as standards for remote electronic signing (CSC) and Open Banking. His current focus is on Decentralized Identity and Verifiable Credentials. For example, he is co-author of OpenID for Verifiable Credentials and supports the European Union’s work on the eIDAS Architecture and Reference Framework.
Torsten holds a Diploma and a PhD in computer science from Dresden University of Technology and Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg, respectively.
