Latest Whitepaper

The research in OIX’s latest White Paper, authored by Ewan Willars of Innovate Identity, firstly asks what we really mean by the concept of trust in the context of a ‘Trusted Digital Identity Ecosystem in the UK’ and explores the symbiotic relationship between trust and interoperability.

Our OIX Workshops are held every 2 – 3 months, with the purpose of turning theory into practise, exploring identity topics and ideas that may result in an OIX pilot/project to test real-world scenarios.

You do not need to be a member to attend an OIX open Workshop, but membership is preferred if you decide to join a project.

OIX will also promote events relevant to identity assurance throughout the year.  These can be run by OIX or any other industry partner.  These will be showcased on our events page.

We encourage everyone interested in digital identity assurance to contact us with feedback, comments and questions.  Please contact us and we will be happy to get back to you as soon as possible.

In addition you can follow the latest information and debates on identity on our LinkedIn group and via Twitter.
