Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:


We have several classes of data:

Uncontrollably exposed

   Here we are throwing up our hands.  

Controllably exposed (for example by contract) retrievable/withdraw able/erasable

   Vanish is an example of a product here.

Is there another level here which is "Assured destruction"

   Disappearing Ink was a company in this space.

Data security becomes very much like a DRM system.

How do we apply this to Identity Information?

Another taxonomy: - Permanent data that we might want to withdraw. - Transient data that should have a limited life.

What controls do we have here? - Contract - Legal obligation

Can a trusted 3rd party help ensure te dustruction/privacy/revocation.

A key question, "what is the incentive for people to be good actors?" or what's the penalty for not obeying privacy restrictions?

Another interestion question of information lifecycle: when the data changes context you may really care. It can be a big problem. The privacy boundaries here are significant and the user needs to be in control.
