               The Future of Federated Identity:
               Consumer Markets, such as Healthcare,
               Deserve Bank Focus



               Overview
               Interest in federated identity, which allows for portability of a user’s authentication across
               multiple domains, has declined over the past five years, as the promise of creating efficiencies
               and revenue streams has not come to fruition. While many large financial institutions (FIs)
               showed an initial interest in driving federated identity solutions as a line of business, only
               one―Wells Fargo—remains committed to doing so. Is this a missed opportunity for FIs?
               Extracting from executive interviews with banks, vendors and industry organizations, and
               presenting a case study of Wells Fargo’s WellsSecure, this report explores the involvement
               among financial industry players in federated identity initiatives, and identifies potential
               opportunities, the need for FI involvement, and impending changes to the landscape moving
               forward.

               Primary Questions
               •    Why have financial institutions abandoned their involvement in federated identity initiatives?
               •    What factors have contributed to Wells Fargo’s role as the dominant FI player as a provider
                    of identity assurance services?
               •    Is there value for FIs―are they missing out on a potentially lucrative revenue opportunity,
                    even if there is no immediate pervasive return on investment?
               •    What new or potentially landscape-changing technologies or initiatives exist that could resur-
                    rect financial institutions’ interest in federated identity?

               Audience:              Financial institutions, technology vendors, federated identity organizations
                                      and industry consortiums
