[20-Minute Lightning Session]

Problem statement: How do you prevent digital exclusion through proper governance of identity on the Internet, where countries are going “digital by default” and developing countries are coming online?

This will be a discussion among all of the participants directed by the chair in order to solicit discussion and debate. There are a number of aspects to this we wish to debate including:
• How do you ensure that identity on the Internet is properly governed to address the sometimes conflicting goals of; inclusion, privacy and national security requirements?
• How do you ensure that identity management and access control systems are designed to be all inclusive and not just designed for white males in lab coats?
• How do you ensure identity management systems do not foster exclusion of groups or minorities by ensuring they cover all languages, and support those with physical and mental challenges?
• Should users self-govern their identities on the Internet or should governments or commercial organisations be involved in identity governance? 
• Should any organisation or body have the right to dictate what personal information can be collected, stored and data-mined and what level of assurance is required in online identity?
• How will freedom of expression be affected by introduction of a generalised system of real-name user identity or enforced assured identity
• Whether legislative controls could ever effectively govern identity on the Internet?
• How to protect the naïve from themselves so they do not damage their privacy or become a victim of identity theft?
