IDMarket Charter

From IdCommons

The IDMarket Group Charter

The goal of the IDMarket Working group to help develop the general public's understanding of "Identity-based services," or "Trusted Services."


Our purpose is two-fold: (1) to help business leaders understand the technology and business dynamics that support the move to Trusted Services; and (2) to help consumers understand how to seek out or take advantage of Trusted Services.

More specifically, our purpose is to help businesses, merchants, and service providers understand the opportunity to improve their relationships with consumers, customers, or individuals in general by developing the ability to interact with each within the context of a trusted relationship.

In a similar way, our goal is to help find ways to help educate the general public about the topics and technologies that will lead to the introduction of Trusted Services.


This working group will operate by the Identity Commons principles.


We will develop our materials and discuss our work on an Open Mailing List. Mailing List.

As materials are developed, they will be linked from this page.
