OIX operates a series of Working Groups to facilitate the development of trust frameworks and trust framework infrastructure. OIX Working Groups are open to employees and contractors of all OIX members, whose participation is covered by the OIX Membership Agreement. In addition, non-members may participate in an OIX Working Group at the invitation of a Working Group member by filling out and submitting the OIX Contributor Agreement. The OIX Working Group process is defined in Part V1 of the OIX Member Rules.
Following are the OIX Working Groups that are active or under formation:
The Telecom Data working group will develop a trust framework that will allow commerce providers, like retailers and etailers, to obtain or verify identity information without interfering in the relationship between a subscriber and a Telecom Service Provider. It will provide a secure and controlled solution for how a telephone number may be used to access identification information while holding private subscriber data “in trust”.The Telecom Data working group is chaired by Scott Rice from PacificEast.

The purpose of this Working Group is to draft the OIX Attribute Exchange Trust Framework Specification to be posted on the OIX website. The Attribute Exchange Trust Framework is intended to facilitate the exchange of identity attributes or claims between attribute providers and relying parties utilizing consumer consent and control of these exchanges. The AX working group is chaired by Dave Coxe from ID Data Web. View the Charter
