The OpenID Foundation has created a test and self-certification program for OpenID Connect protocol implementations to stimulate interoperability, deployment and robustness of these implementations. The certification suite can be used to certify both Relying Parties and Provider implementations against the OpenID Connect protocol specifications. This presentation provides an introduction into the OpenID Foundation and the OpenID Connect self-certification program and will cover the following topics:

- what is the OpenID Foundation and how does it compare to other standardization organizations

- what is OpenID Connect, how does it relate to consumer identity and why is certification important

- what is self-certification and how does it contribute to safety and privacy of consumer identity data on the Internet

When doing digital business, you will never meet your customers face-to-face, and there is a need to establish certainty and proof of the customers' identity. Digital on-boarding must be simple for the user, while at the same time give the business enough information to ensure trust.

Many organizations have complex onboarding processes, which puts a high demand on the user. A survey we did, showed that 40% of financial customers don't go through with the process.

It is important to balance convenience for the user with risk and regulatory requirements, to achieve reasonable assurance.

The eIDAS regulation (Regulation (EU) 910/2014), defines assurance levels, which are in the process of being incorporated in the local laws throughout Europe. This regulation will affect how identity assurance will be done.

Key takeaways:

  • How to avoid losing 40% of your potential customers during on-boarding
  • eIDAS and the role of identities
  • Gradual on-boarding and step-up
