This document sets forth the response of the Open Identity Exchange (“OIX”) to the Notice of Inquiry (“NOI”) issued by the Department of Commerce and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for “Models for a Governance Structure for the National Strategy for Trusted Identity in Cyberspace”. OIX has designed this response to set forth its vision for the process by which the Identity Ecosystem Framework and its component Trust Frameworks can best be developed; suggest an approach for the governance structure of the NSTIC Steering group; and invite the National Program Office charged with achieving the goals of the Strategy and the Steering Group it seeks to establish, to join with other stakeholders to avail themselves of OIX programs and tools to help to integrate the related “legal standards” setting processes.
