Identity Trust is about transparency and accountability. At this time digital identity management is operating with obscure privacy and terms of service policies that are not sufficient for managing real identities. These policies are not clear enough and do not provide what is legally understood as ‘Adequate Notice’.
This becomes a significant issue when an organization demands your real identity. Without a visible way to better understand the use of real identity, trust it is very difficult to assess and an individual does not clearly understand how much control is possible over identity.
Identity Trust supports pioneering projects in notice and identity that are openly developed to facilitate trust and privacy. This projcet supports real identity as a community asset rather than just corporate or personal asset.
We are actively engaged in performing assessments that provide transparency over consent and control of identity in a community context so that trust can be better understood.
