dc.description.abstract Increasingly, our online identity is defined and verified by "who communicates with us": our network of friends, colleagues, and associates. Identifications and authentications via our network can extend, strengthen, and occasionally even replace, the three types of point-identifications: "what we know", "what we have", and "who we are". In this seminar, I'll explore the implications of modelling a set of people and their computational agents as a set of point-identities, with three types of edges between points. Alias edges connect two facets of the same person, agent, or organisation. Freely-communicating entities are linked by peering edges; and there is a hierarchical relation between a "superior" entity and each of its inferiors. When an identity graph is viewed as a model of personal identity, the points are personae. When viewed as a model of organisational identity, the points are roles. The persona/role duality of networked identities is fundamental to The Jericho Forum's recently-published Identity Commandments ( andments%20v1.0.pdf). Many types of privacy claims can be modelled as edge-separators in a networked-identity graph. We are currently exploring the possibility that identity claims and authenticators are naturally expressed as fragments of an identity graph; if this is the case, then our modelling approach would be a useful component in an interoperability standard for identity management systems. en
