Identity Ecosystem Steering Group launches registry for trusted identities

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

The Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG) has launched the Identity Ecosystem Framework (IDEF) Registry, a tool that enables companies to assess their own identity management processes against industry practices, according to a report by Secure ID News.

The IDEF Registry will use the IDESG’s Identity Ecosystem Framework as a reference model so that organizations can improve common criteria for interoperability, privacy, security and usability.

The tool will encourage organizations to work towards achieving milestones in these subject areas, ultimately ensuring that digital identities on a whole are protected and trustworthy online.

Organizations will self-attest to fulfilling the criteria and being placed on the registry, which is part of a greater goal in securing digital identities.

Additionally, the registry is an opportunity for online identity service providers and owners and operators of applications that register, issue, authenticate, authorize and use identity credentials to prove that they operate secure platforms for their customers.

Companies initially listed on the registry include MorphoTrust; DigiCert, Inc.; Tozny, LLC; and Privacy Vaults Online, Inc. (PRIVO).

To be enrolled in the registry, organizations must first determine their roles in the Identity Ecosystem, such as being a provider of digital identity services or a user of web services.

Next, organizations must conduct a self-assessment to determine full or partial compliance with the IDEF requirements.

Once they have completed this self-assessment, they must complete the IDEF Registry form. The IDESG will review the form, contact the organization with any questions, and then publish the listing to the Registry.

The IDESG has a pipeline of applicants and anticipates significant demand to join these early adopters to complete the process. Listing in the IDEF Registry is currently free for those who self attest.
