The Identity Ecosystem needs to be a user-centric online environment – a set of Technology Infrastructures, policies and agreed upon standards that securely supports transactions ranging from anonymous to fully-authenticated and from low to high value.

  • The Trust Registry will typically only have a data base of entities and attributes of those entities together with assurance data.
  • The destination could be a physical venue or just an online resource.
