Public Review Period:
The public review starts 16 June 2012 and ends 16 July 2012.
This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
This document is a survey of trust elevation or transactional trust mechanisms members use or sell at the level of detail they are comfortable sharing. It also contains some Illustrative uses of methods, which highlight the types of methods used or proposed as needed. This document, which is the Trust-Elevation TC's first deliverable is intended to be used as input to further analysis.
The Trust Elevation Technical Committee will identify methods being used currently to elevate trust of electronic identities by online relying parties and service providers, and similar methods in development or identified in theoretical models. By comparison and factoring of those methods, the TC will propose and describe a set of standardized protocols that service providers may use to elevate the trust in an electronic identity credential presented to them for authentication, at levels of identity assurance or risk mitigation, representing increasing degrees of authentication certainty.
