Open Identity Exchange Members, OpenID Foundation, SAFE-BioPharma, and SecureKey to be the First to Register at OIXnet
RSA Conference 2015, San Francisco, CA – April 22, 2015 – Today the Open Identity Exchange (OIX) launched OIXnet™, an online registry of trust frameworks and identity systems. It is the first registry developed by global leaders across industry sectors to enable online transactions at higher volumes, velocity and variety.
The OpenID Foundation was the first to leverage OIXnet, registering OpenID certifications of deployment by members, including Google, Microsoft, ForgeRock, Ping Identity, PayPal, and Nomura Research Institute.
In the second phase of the OIXnet Registry rollout, trust framework providers like the SAFE-BioPharma Association and SecureKey will register business legal and technical interoperability requirements at OIXnet.
SAFE-BioPharma™ will register its digital identity and signature standards for its trust framework participants at OIXnet. SAFE-BioPharma provides global high-assurance identity trust for cyber-transactions across the biopharmaceutical and healthcare industries.
SecureKey will register its SecureKey Concierge trust framework in the OIX Registry. SecureKey Concierge is a service that Canadians use to access public sector services in Canada where high assurance is required. Canadian banks, which already have existing strong and trusted relationships with Canadians, are the trust anchors for the service; banks are ideally situated to establish trust for consumers online with government organizations.
The OIXnet Registry and the OpenID Connect test suite will be hosted by Symantec to ensure the security of the trust framework resources and certifications.
The Open Identity Exchange is rolling out the OIXnet registry in concert with the OpenID Foundation’s OpenID Certification program for OpenID Connect implementations. See the OpenID Foundation’s press release on the certification program launch for more information on this related development.
