Today’s password-focused website login process is unsafe and risky and has led to personal information and data being compromised through phishing and hacking attacks on weak systems. The potentially devastating consequences associated with the hijacking and theft of digital identities highlights the need for a trusted and certified framework that relying parties can depend on for identity authentication.

Verizon, which was one of the founding members of the Open Identity Exchange (OIX), has achieved a Level 3 U.S. Government certification in providing identity credentials and access management to relying parties. Beyond providing a safeguard for digital identities, certified identity providers will help speed Internet conversations, interactions and transactions.

OIX, its member companies and Verizon aim to provide an open framework that standardizes the security, privacy, and operation policies of identity service providers that people, businesses and governments can trust. ?The Internet identity ecosystem is quickly evolving with companies playing many different roles. The OIX is focused on the roles of attribute providers, identity providers, and relying parties.
