The Challenges of Third-party Identity Credentials & How a Trusted Identity Registry May Help: Example Initiatives in the UK and the US

  • TYPE: Roundtable DATE: Wednesday, May 14, 2014 TIME: 11:00-13:00 LOCATION: BODENSEE I

Common law governments worldwide have begun to make commitments to adopt federated models for identity registration and credential authentication for central government services.  This approach requires close collaboration with industry to create the needed schemes or trust frameworks that organize the business, legal, and technical standards, and policies and best practices needed to succeed.

As these countries architect and deploy their identity federations it’s important that such development does not become siloed by jurisdiction.  Rather, for the successful operation of any market there needs to be trusted information sharing.  Listings—like the yellow pages—leverage data.  Directories—like the DNS—speed introductions. Exchanges—like the NASDAQ—grow markets.  Registries simplify transactions – wedding registries are an example.

Today, there are no such forums for sharing information on trusted identity.  OIX is building one.

Under the direction of the OIX Board of Directors, OIX is building OIXnet, an authoritative registry for online identity trust and a neutral exchange for sharing trusted identity data to enable global interoperability among identity federations in the commercial, non-profit, and public sectors.  The goal: a greater variety of trusted transactions at a greater velocity.
