Latest White Paper

Building a Trusted Environment: Event-based Data Assurance

In this latest OIX Whitepaper, we seek to articulate what it would take for an Entity to set itself up as an Event Provider and/or Event Consumer, what the motivations for doing so might be and how it would benefit not only the Claimant but also the Ecosystem as a whole. Read the Whitepaper HERE.

Joining Open Identity Exchange (OIX) is easy, our fee structure is open and structured to allow participation, whatever your organisation’s size or role in the identity community.

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.
