So here's the blague...
The OASIS IDtrust Member Section, http://www.oasis-idtrust.org/ , is pleased to co-sponsor the 7th Symposium on Identity and Trust on the Internet (IDtrust) 2008 – formerly known as the PKI R&D Workshop. The event will occur on 4-6 March 2008 at the NIST facility in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
What cracked me up was the "formerly known as the PKI R&D Workshop". So my question to myself was: Is this just simply a PKI R&D Workshop warmed over to attract more people to it or is it really about Identity and Trust on the Internet? I agree with the rename from a marketing perspective. Imagine Kentuck Fried Chicken being marketed as "Hot, Dead Chicken" - they might want a rename, too.
I thought 2007 was the year of PKI so why rename the workshop? (Some old timers will get this blague, I hope)
Have a good weekend everyone. I'm glad you're not sitting here at LAX with me.
PKI, identity management
