IBM trusted identity initiative


Identity has become a new focal point in today’s global economy, in which trust in your identity and credentials – and those of others – is essential in a variety of daily transactions. You use your identity to connect with people, groups and organizations, both digitally and face-to-face. Each connection is founded on trust and shaped by the ongoing confidence placed in the systems which create and manage your identities.

IBM’s vision is to bring a new level of trust and confidence to identification systems – how a person is enrolled in a system, issued their identity credentials, how those credentials are used and finally disposition of the credentials.
