Philadelphia — March 3, 2010 – Hal Warren, President of the OpenID society, yesterday addressed members of the National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) and announced to the group the formation of the Open Identity Exchange (OIX). The NFAIS is a membership association for all organizations that create, aggregate, organize, and otherwise provide ease of access to and effective navigation and use of authoritative, credible information. Warren was speaking at the group’s annual conference, “Redefining the Value of Information: Exploring the New Equation” held at Park Hyatt Philadelphia at the Bellevue in Philadelphia, PA.
The opportunity for us as Advanced Information Service providers is to bring forth agreements of the trusted claims we manage. As an example, we at the American Psychological Association can verify claims of authorship, membership or employment. As we build an ecosystem of Trusted Identity the bandwidth and reliability of human-to-human communication will increase and our capacity to contribute will grow.
