GSA opens up to open Identity

The GSA held a privacy conference in DC today to discuss the work it has been doing with the OpenID Foundation, Infocard Foundation and INCommon.

The intention is to open government web sites and services to identities provided by commercial providers using open technology.

The test-id.org site has a number of tests for the new profiles for Information Cards and openID.

The OIDF and ICF released a paper on open trust frameworks today.

Identity providers who are interested in participating in the program should contact the respective foundations for more information.

People interested can read the Trust Provider Adoption Process

I am hoping that GSA/ICAM releases the profiles soon so that we can have a full discussion.
