Full Title or Meme

The level of trust that can be afforded a claim of an Identifier or Attribute.

Context

Problems

  • In contexts where names are not validated (of low Assurance) the problem arises that trolls many adopt the name of some well-known person to be able to make statements that falsely appear to be from the real person.[1]
  • See discussion on the pages for Ephemeral and Persistent.

Solutions

A rather facile mapping of the NIST levels of Assurance to the processes known today is:

  • AAL1 ==> password
  • AAL2 ==> 2FA
  • AAL3 ==> U2F

The best source of Truth about an Identity is obtained by documentation of the Identity Proofing process. That is something that can be audited to measure reality against expectations.
