  8. 12. PBS’ Online Identity Initiative February 2010
  9. 13. What Most People Think Of
  10. 14. When Really Its…
  11. 15. A Little More About That Ecosystem... <ul><ul><li>PBS is consistently rated as being one of the most trustworthy brands in America. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We serve users across platforms, and of all ages </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Parents, educators, and kids </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Key stakeholders include member stations, show creators, and partner organizations. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The whole ecosystem is federated, including </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ultimately, public media is almost like a microcosm of the web </li></ul></ul>
  12. 16. The Vision <ul><ul><li>Users ought to be able to move across, their local station site, and trusted partner sites and retain their identity and related data. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The technology is progressing nicely toward that goal, but the policy side however is much more far-reaching. </li></ul></ul>
  13. 17. Where PBS Is Now <ul><ul><li>Release 1 - Implemented OpenID based OP to power internal sites, and sites that were tired of managing their own authentication services. Included core user account data, standard 'redirect' user experience </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Release 2 - Implemented UX extension for 'overlay' experience </li></ul></ul>
  14. 18. Where We Want To Go <ul><ul><li>Short and Medium Term </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Enhanced user profiles, including allowing RPs to store extended profile data at the OP </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Begin building out the consumer side of system, allow users to connect with and use their 3rd party accounts across ecosystem </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Need: Additional market data on consumer demand and acceptance of tying accounts together </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Need: Further revision of the UX </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 19. What This All Means <ul><ul><li>We need to protect and insure not only the technical layer, but also the policy layer. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Trust Framework concept seems to be very compelling for the public media space. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PBS has teamed up with the OIDf and ICf to investigate and map out what a Public Media Trust Framework might entail -- talking to Stations, Shows, NPR, and companies like Google and PayPal to envision a time when all of this might come together and to create a path forward. </li></ul></ul>
  16. 20. Questions / Discussion <ul><ul><li>Daniel Jacobson </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>@daniel_jacobson </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rob Harles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Jonathan Coffman </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>@jdcoffman </li></ul></ul></ul>
  17. 21. RP and OP Discussion Ideas Are the views provided by NPR, PBS and Sears representative of the views of other potential RPs?   What are other impediments for potential RPs?   What is the best way to conduct market surveys and analysis?  What should we be asking and/or looking for?   What can we do to improve overall usability of OpenID?   What can we do to promote awareness and adoption of OpenID by potential end users?   What kinds of code libraries would help facilitate easier implementation for potential RPs?
