Strategic focus

The work of the OASIS IDtrust Member Section focuses on four key areas:

Identity and Trusted Infrastructure components, such as cataloguing and carrying out studies and projects addressing technology-based Identity and Trust models and standards, including those that are PKI-based as well as those utilizing other security mechanisms; relevant protocols and standards; trust infrastructures in use; and costs, benefits and risk management issues.

Identity and Trust Policies and Enforcement, including policies and policy issues; policy mapping and standardization; assurance; technical validation mechanisms; and trust path building and validation.

Education and Outreach: documenting trust use cases and business case scenarios, best practices and adoption reports and papers; organizing conferences and workshops; and establishing Web-based resources.

Barriers and Emerging Issues associated with Identity and Trusted Infrastructures, including data privacy issues; interoperability; cross border/ organizational trust; outsourcing; cryptographic issues; application integration; and international issues.
