Boeing has long been one of the most progressive companies when it comes to identity management and how it can enable new value chains in a large ecosystem. Marty Schleiff is one of the reasons. I’ve worked with him extensively on the XRI Technical Committee at OASIS, but Marty’s involved with pretty much every aspect of identity and directory services at Boeing.
Marty’s new blog is called Identity Happens. It was motivated by his idea of creating something like an OSI reference model for identity. Give it a read — this is going to be a great discussion.
