Distinguished Engineer, Ping Identity
Beyond Bearer: Token Binding as the Foundation for a More Secure Web
As a Distinguished Engineer for Ping Identity, Brian Campbell aspires to one day know what a Distinguished Engineer actually does for a living. In the meantime, he’s tried to make himself useful with little things like designing and building much of PingFederate, the product that put Ping Identity on the map, and creating the popular open source JWT library jose4j. When not making himself useful, he contributes to various identity and security standards including a two-year stint as co-chair of the OASIS Security Services Technical Committee (SAML) and ongoing contributions to OAuth, JOSE and Token Binding in the IETF as well as OpenID Connect. He holds a B.A., magna cum laude, in Computer Science from Amherst College in Massachusetts.
