In effort to develop more secure online transaction services, Kantara and the Open Identity Exchange have introduced their most recent collaborative effort in online trust ecosystems.
The Kantara Initiative has officially partnered with The Open Identity Exchange (OIX), a nonprofit provider of certification trust frameworks for online identity, to announce the trust framework adoption plan. This development in digital trust frameworks can increase secure logins and e-commerce applications. Idenitiy credentials can now be produced by one site but remain compatible to all other sites.
The two companies have partnered to deliver a service that combines Kantara Initiative Identity Assurance Framework (IAF) and the OIX Trust Framework Platform. The technology produced as a result of this merger has been said to meet the needs of a variety of networks, transactions and jurisdictions all around the world.
Both organizations will submit their own certification assessment results into an operational database hosted by OIX, thus providing a comprehensive view of their certification.
In further collaboration Kantara Initiative representatives will join the OIX Advisory Board, and OIX will join the Kantara Initiative Identity Assurance Working Group (IAWG).
