Federated ID-enabled Consent Management services

In the Canada Health Infoway Cloud strategy document they call for “F/IDM” and Consent Management services.

F/IDM stands for Federated Identity Management, and Consent Management the specific functionality that this type of system enables. In short it manages the Privacy aspects of managing your online data, where you might provide Consent to your bank for them to provide your banking related data to another organization, like a government agency.

F/IDM is the core technical building blocks for how this data exchange is enabled, how the different organizations implement the shared rules that regulate the exchanges.

This same architecture and set of services is also called for from the Canadian Government – In this paper they describe the need and opportunity for a pan-Canadian Federated Identity system, uniting different levels of the public sector.

The services this would enable are described in use case scenarios on page 5, such as:

  • An individual moving from Nova Scotia to BC notifies Service Canada, who then provides BC with the new address data
  • An Ontario driver renews his driver’s licence and selects the enhanced identity verification option, which then allows his drivers licence data to be used for other processes, like this one above
  • A Windsor resident opening a small business is offered a streamlined licencing application procedure

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
