The Higgins Trust Framework is an Open Source initiative that intends to address four challenges: the lack of common interfaces to identity/networking systems, the need for interoperability, the need to manage multiple contexts, and the need to respond to regulatory, public or customer pressure to implement solutions based on trusted infrastructure that offers security and privacy.
In this presentation, Novell will discuss the purposes of the project, its implications for the online society and how citizens will benefit from and take control of their digital identity.
