Information Card and OpenID Foundations to collabortate on the Open Trust Framework

Mary Rudy of the Information Card Foundation (ICF) announced recently a joint effort with the OpenID Foundation (OIDF) to collaborate on the Open Government Initiative that will enable the US government to accept Information Cards and OpenIDs from industry identity providers.

At Gov 2.0 last month, Vivek Kundra, the Federal CIO, announced a pilot project to have government websites accept industry identity credentials. The Information Card and OpenID foundations issued a joint press release naming ten industry Identity Providers and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as the first agency to participate in a pilot project.

"As part of enabling this initiative, the ICF has worked closely with the US General Services Administration (GSA) Identity Credential and Access Management (ICAM) committee to define profiles of the Information Card IMI 1.0 standard for use by US government websites for levels of Assurance 1-3. In order for US government websites to know which IdPs conform to the GSA’s profile and privacy policies, the GSA is requiring that IdPs be certified" said Mary Ruddy.

To that aim, the ICF and OIDF are collaborating to create an Open Trust Framework program that can perform this certification. The Open Trust Framework is explained in the joint white paper Open Trust Frameworks for Open Government.
