EP59: The Guardrails Trilogy - Legal Frameworks Reform

[Broadcast on May 23, 2024] This panel looks to the various actionable legal reforms that have been – and are anticipated to be – undertaken in opening-up the right to access to identification to all persons in a country. It starts from the base consideration of identification as an administrative process undertaken by the state to know its population. The session explores what actions might be done to identify and fill gaps, using lived experiences to highlight challenges about what does – and does not – work. Particular consideration is given to making sure that legal frameworks are compatible with the digital age, that they respect and support safeguards and enablers, and that due consideration is given to engagement with society within the framework of participative legal reform.

EP58: The Guardrails Trilogy - CSO's Perspective on building Trust & Protecting Human Rights

[Broadcast on May 23, 2024] Civil society organizations (CSOs) across Africa and the globe are making important contributions to advance universal access to legal identity for all. Contributions include service design recommendations for various operational processes, legal empowerment initiatives, research and community engagement, participation in oversight mechanisms, and advocacy for proper legal and policy safeguards. However, the skills, knowledge and effective modalities for working with and leveraging civil society expertise are not always widely understood by other actors pursuing the shared goal of inclusive and safe digital identification systems. This panel brings together prominent civil society individuals and organizations who are working with communities, government implementers and international development partners to advance equitable access, safeguard against harm, and enable full participation of individuals within society. The session highlights the different kinds of contributions CSOs are making and opportunities to enhance participation and collaboration. Panelists share research and practices that can help governments better design identity systems that are more inclusive and safe in support of development goals, and discuss ways to achieve more effective multistakeholder discourse around the difficult trade-offs that sometimes arise in the introduction of new digital identification systems.

EP56: Advanced Digital Credentials Management

[Broadcast on May 23, 2024] This session delves in detail into digital credential models and the management of digital identity credentials. The primary focus centers on the three most recent and promising innovations: digital wallets, mobile driver's licenses, and verifiable credentials. As the digital identity landscape continues to evolve, the convergence of the three innovations offers a promising avenue for more efficient and secure identity management and verification processes. The session is thoughtfully structured into three distinct segments, each led by a team of frontline experts. Within each segment, these experts thoroughly analyze the credential model, elucidate its implementation, underscore its advantages, dissect the underlying standards, and assess its interplay with the other models.

EP55: Interoperability of Identity Data & Systems

[Broadcast on May 22, 2024] The question of interoperability of identity systems continues to gain significance, driven by a few important use cases. This session explores two compelling use cases in Africa. Segment 1 focuses on the interoperability between humanitarian identity systems and national systems, particularly in the context of refugees and displaced individuals. The discussion extends beyond operational and technical considerations to include protective measures, ensuring that interoperability benefits individuals by empowering them to participate in the digital economy of the host country without causing harm. The second use case is related to regional and continental integration schemes and the free movement of persons and goods, such as those promoted by ECOWAS, SADC, and the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). In Segment 2, a panel of experts examines the crucial role digital identity can play in supporting these schemes, while highlighting the interoperability challenges that remain to be addressed. The discussion encompasses several perspectives, including policy, legal and regulatory, business practices, and digital infrastructure requirements.

EP54: The NIST Symposium : The State of Art in Biometrics

This exceptional symposium features leading biometric experts from NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), the US-based organization renowned for setting global standards, establishing performance benchmarks, and providing guidelines. The session begins with an introduction to NIST and its evaluation activities, covering core biometric concepts, metrics, and use-cases. In a series of presentations, it then delves into the strengths and weaknesses of face, iris, and fingerprint modalities. Each modality-specific segment emphasizes capabilities, limitations, and usage considerations for identity Page 8 verification. The face segment highlights NIST's Face Recognition Technology Evaluation (FRTE), addressing 1-to-1 verification, 1-to-N search, accuracy gains, demographic effects, and the twins issue. It also covers the Face Analysis Technology Evaluation (FATE) encompassing morph detection, face quality effects, presentation attack detection, and age verification. The iris recognition section discusses results from the Iris Exchange (IREX) benchmark and contrasts them with face recognition results. Contactless fingerprint evaluation focuses on performance, interoperability, and certification guidance. AGENDA 1. Introduction to NIST 2. Biometrics 101 3. Face – FRTE/FATE 4. Iris 5.
