“Global trends of Digital Identity” session
To be able to authenticate a user online is one of the most fundamental infrastructures for public internet services, such infrastructure could be implemented with various approaches in different countries/regions. Technically there are many existing technologies around the world: the traditional id/password, OTP, smart card, PKI, Biometrics, and the emerging new standards such as FIDO, W3C WebAuthn, etc. In some cases, especially for members of Asia PKI Consortium (APKIC), the government could play an important role in the development of national digital infrastructure. In this session we will introduce the status for national online authentication infrastructure for members of APKIC, and the examples of public and private services.

Identity Management (IM) is the process of identifying, authenticating, and authorizing entities for the purpose of allowing such entities access to services, systems, locations, devices, or information. Identities are attributes given to various kinds of entities, including people, organizations, devices, locations, and software components, to name a few. We rely on or trust that the attributes are given to entities accurately and with authority, and trust management is the process of specifying and interpreting security policies, credentials, and relationships that support decisions for assigning and using identity attributes. As the physical and cyber worlds are merged, we are increasingly dependent on Identity and Trust Management for our very survival.
This talk reviews the technologies available for trust and identity management, and focuses on some of the newer technologies, including zero knowledge proofs, blockchains, and other distributed ledgers. We explain how we can preserve privacy while using these technologies, and conclude by describing a strategy whereby we can gradually introduce and test increasingly secure and trustworthy technologies for applications we all use daily.

“Digital Identity Service” session
LINE can be seen as a huge Digital Identity Platform, where not only LINE’s original service but also partner companies are involved to provide many services, and it is a huge Digital Identity Platform. While pursuing correspondence of various abuse related to account occurring in LINE, we have worked on improving the security of the account and redesigning it.
In this presentation, we will also introduce technical issues and systematic efforts to advance these Abuse responses and security improvements while maximizing the balance between user convenience and security.

Deployments of FIDO and WebAuthn at Google span implementations in clients such as Chrome and Android, a FIDO certified authenticator on Android, and Google itself acting as a relying party. In this presentation we discuss some recent deployments of these standards to fight phishing, and look towards the future on how they can offer new sign-in experiences across user devices.

This talk will include;
– Password related Issues and approach to solve them, in case of Yahoo!Japan
– Penetration of “password-less” user-experience in Yahoo!Japan
– Issues to spread “password-less”

“Digital Trust” Session
Along with the rapid development of AI, the recognition accuracy of images and sounds has improved to the extent that it exceeds human recognition ability.In the future AI may become a part of important decision making for human beings and society. Thispresentation will show the aspect that AI introduces AI such as hostile case and model reversal, while AI could contribute to advance the current security technology (AI for Security). Thus, there exists security and privacy problem unique to AI (Security for AI).

Information such as video and audio is now not only digital data in its form, but its distribution channel of digital data has become complicated.At the same time, the development of technology such as AI enabled different type of attacks on information. One of them is falsification of information by AI called Deepfake.
When such use of Deepfake spreads, it becomes very difficult to ask the media data genuinely. For example, although photography and video data from surveillance cameras can be evidence for crime, such development of Deepfake makes it difficult to evaluate the authenticity of video and audio as AI evolving rapidly.
As a possible countermeasure, I will introduce a method that can be used to guarantee authenticity of information with robust security, fast processing, excellent scalability based on the Blockchain mechanism.

In today’s digital world the balance between safety and convenience is a very important issue. NEC utilizes it’s an advanced biometric authentication technology “Bio-Idiom” to provide high security and improved customer experience. In this presentation, NEC would like to introduce our concept of simple, secure & swift user on-boarding “First Travel” with self eKYC for digitally oriented businesses
Takeshi Suzuki / NEC Corporation, Manager
In the emerging era of Digital Identity, “authentication” that verifies the correspondence between identities (and related data) in cyberspace and physical entities such as humans and things is expected to play a more and more important role.
In this talk I discuss some arising issues of conventional authentication technologies including biometrics and cryptography in the era of Digital Identity. Then as an approach to the issues, I introduce the concept of Public Biometrics Infrastructure (PBI) which enables secure and trusted on-line biometric authentication based on public-key cryptography without managing any secret key or biometric feature data. Enabling technologies and examples of practical use of PBI are also introduced. Lastly I discuss several possibilities of fruitful collaborations between PBI and other schemes such FIDO and Blockchain.
