Read our Terms of Reference

Why we do it:

Identity of individuals is generally considered (as humans) as non-transferable and to have the same lifetime as the individual. Abuse of identity can have considerable consequences to liberty and may have long as well as short term consequences. The European privacy directive (amongst other laws) has tried to address the legal obligations to preserve a user’s control of identity (specifically to counter SPAM/SPIT).

In a standardisation context it has to be asked what can be done to use technology to bolster the legal frameworks and, in particular, to build the non-repudiation services that countering abuse requires.
