In the NSTIC, the president called for an "overarching set of interoperability standards, risk models, privacy and liability policies, requirements, and accountability mechanisms that structure the Identity Ecosystem."
Today, I'm proud to announce that the privately-led Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG) has delivered. Thanks to the incredible dedication of the IDESG's volunteer membership, version 1 of the Identity Ecosystem Framework (IDEF) is now a final public document. This framework raises the bar for online transactions and substantially advances the Identity Ecosystem.
