The OpenID Foundation has started the new eKYC and Identity Assurance Working Group, which will develop OpenID specifications for providing Relying Parties with identity information, i.e. Verified Claims, along with an explicit attestation of the verification status of those Claims (what, how, when, according to what rules, using what evidence). “eKYC” is an industry acronym for “electronic Know Your Customer”. The starting point will be the recently approved OpenID Connect for Identity Assurance
draft that was developed by the OpenID Connect Working Group.
More information about the working group can be found at https://openid.net/wg/ekyc-ida/
. This page includes information on joining the working group and its mailing list. The first official call of the new eKYC and Identity Assurance working group will take place on the 8th of January 2020 at 4pm (CET).
