Got trust? Seeking public comment on new NIST publication for developing trust frameworks to support identity federation
Some communities and organizations that share common user bases and transaction types are addressing challenges to users’ privacy and security by allowing users to access multiple services through common login processes. This approach – known as federated identity management – enables users to access multiple online organizations and services through shared authentication processes, instead of authenticating separately with each service provider.

Last week in New Orleans, the Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG) launched the Identity Ecosystem Framework (IDEF) Registry and publicly listed the first four organizations to self-attest. At the 17th IDESG plenary meeting, these organizations presented their experiences – emphasizing the business benefit of publicly showcasing their dedication to trusted digital identity solutions. They also shared the ease of self-attestation, thanks to the IDESG’s concierge that assists Registry applicants. Continue reading
This morning at the Cloud Identity Summit in New Orleans, the IDESG announced the implementation of the IDEF Registry, an online listing service where ecosystem participants can report their self-assessed status against the IDEF baseline requirements. By attesting to these requirements on the Registry, organizations can showcase their commitment to providing trusted digital identity services. It’s a great way for organizations to demonstrate that they have crossed a threshold in the marketplace, addressing mature protections for consumers beyond those minimally required by law.

When the Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG) plenary convened last week in Tampa, Florida, attendees meant business. By Friday afternoon, committees had finalized the baseline requirements and supplemental guidance for v1 of the Identity Ecosystem Framework (IDEF). Now the plenary stands in recess with the IDESG on track for a major milestone: completion of the IDEFv1, set for public release on October 20th! Continue reading
It’s certainly too early to spike the ball, but yesterday the Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG) met another milestone by approving the initial set of baseline requirements for the Identity Ecosystem Framework (IDEF). These requirements are a critical element to building the IDEF—which the IDESG has been chartered to establish and govern. As identified in the NSTIC, successful establishment of the IDEF is a must-have in the ongoing successful development of online commerce, government efficiency, and effective and efficient communication among and between individuals, the private sector, and the public sector. The baseline requirements were developed by IDESG work committees to address minimum requirements for Identity Ecosystem participants in four key areas: privacy, security and resiliency, interoperability, and user experience. These areas align directly with the committee structure of the IDESG and with the Guiding Principles of the NSTIC. Continue reading
The Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG), now in its third year, is a key part of the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). It serves as a forum to build the core set of rules and standards to promote privacy, security, interoperability, and ease of use for online services. I wouldn’t say IDESG meetings are exactly like standards development meetings, but they are similar in that much of the contention and dissention makes me sure of two things: Continue reading
