Many consumers are suspect of conducting online transactions because they believe their data won't be secure or private. That's where Trust Frameworks come in. Trust Frameworks aligning and attesting to the IDEF can establish how their distinct service components will interact in the Identity Ecosystem. Our goal is that there will be multiple Trust Frameworks operating within the Identity Ecosystem as it evolves.
One of our objectives is to guide the development of Trust Frameworks in alignment with the NSTIC Guiding Principles. Trust Frameworks used by IDESG's member organizations (a.k.a. relying parties) must meet the IDEF's baseline requirements and policies, using a wide array of approved standards. We can help Trust Framework Providers to understand how to incorporate the Guiding Principles into their Trust Frameworks.
