Subject/title: Open identity trust framework
Summary: This Recommendation addresses identity management technologies that reduce the friction of using the Web, much like credit cards reduce the friction of paying for goods and services. However, they also introduce a new problem: who do you trust? In other words, how does a relying party know it can trust credentials from an identity service provider without knowing if that provider's security, privacy, and operational policies are strong enough to protect the relying party's interests? A trust framework enables a party who accepts a digital identity credential (called the relying party) to trust the identity, security, and privacy policies of the party who issues the credential (called the identity service provider).
