Identity Ecosystem Framework (IDEF) Registry

The Identity Ecosystem Framework (IDEF) Registry program is designed to build trust online. The IDEF Registry is a single web presence for online identity service providers and owners or operators of applications that authenticate identity credentials. Here is where they can report their self-assessed status against a set of common criteria based off the NSTIC Guiding Principles. These criteria are for reliable security, privacy, ease of use, cost savings, and user choice. Those who attest on the IDEF Registry declare their commitment to operate in accordance with the Identity Ecosystem Baseline Functional Requirements, and upholding a higher vision for identity.
