First of a Kind/One of a Kind


At the OIX pre-discovery event in May, senior representatives from leading private and public sector organizations, many of them OIX members, collaborated on the first step of analyzing how they wanted to define open identity services in the UK. A federated approach to internet identity as the engine of a cross sector market model were favoured outcomes. The benefits of such an approach were seen in, increased customer acquisition and revenue, reduced fraud and compliance costs, all together in an improved customer experience. The OIX White paper written by Innovate Identity expands the outcomes of that day.

UK Members have asked OIX to accelerate the discovery project during the next two months with the purpose of articulating actionable plans for overall UK identity market standards across sector, and to share its findings in a OIX White paper that will inform discussions at OIX’s Economics of Identity II summit planned for November (date to be announced soon).

This increased pace and scope includes targeted industry engagement refined through a series of sector specific workshops surveys to capture industry feedback for analysis (see the white paper appendix for the survey questions). Innovate Identity working closely with OIX will drive the testing of user needs to anticipate stakeholder interests in federated identity ecosystems.

This project is the first of its kind and one of a kind in its scope, scale and ambition it may prove to be a significant step to a UK market where the public and private sector work together to create an open and trustworthy digital identity market

We hope you will participate, alongside our members – email oixuk@openidentityexchange.org to be involved in the project, attend the workshops and respond to the survey.
