No need to say it, it goes without saying, it should be obvious to all but,
just in case it isn't obvious to all,
IDA is dead.
IDA, now known as "GOV.UK Verify (RIP)",
is the Cabinet Office Identity Assurance programme.
And it's dead.
OIX, the intensive care team, is well known to DMossEsq's millions of regular readers but for the rest of you:
OIX has just published not one but two white papers:
Open Identity Exchange UK (OIXUK)
This is the UK arm of a global organisation working directly with governments and the private sector developing solutions and trust for online identity, specifically for the British citizen.
OIX UK works closely with the Cabinet Office on the Identity Assurance Programme. This is the development of the GOV.UK Verify service. The identity assurance process can also be applied to other, non government websites where proof of identity is wanted.
The OIX goal is to enable the expansion of online identity services and adoption of new online identity products.
We work as a broker between industries designing, testing and developing pilot projects to test real use cases. All project results are published for the public in the form of white papers.
OIX UK is open to new members. Non members are welcome to attend our workshops, membership is preferred for participation in projects – contact us for further information.
