This white paper introduces OIX as a solution for Internet-scale identity assurance. It starts by summarizing the underlying Open Identity Trust Framework model on which OIX is based. It then covers the structure and operation of OIX itself, and how members qualify for certification listings for specific trust frameworks at specific levels of assurance and protection. It provides several example OIX trust frameworks both in operation and development, and concludes by examining how OIX is designed to produce a “race to the top” in online identity policy standards.
