ME Partners with EAP to Deliver Industry-led Authentication Trust Framework
The leadership of the Office of Technology Strategy (ME) helped form the
Electronic Authentication Partnership (EAP), consisting of over 50 prominent corporate IT and
government agency participants. At the February 9th EAP meeting, the first installed Board of
Directors was introduced, and the first version of a national identity Trust Framework was published.
The EAP mission is to promote interoperability among public and private on-line authentication systems.
Collaboration between industry, ME and public policy leaders drove the development of the Framework,
which provides rules and procedures for electronic credentials issued by an EAP-certified participant
that may be relied on by any participating authentication system. Significant components of the
Federal E-Authentication Initiative (EAI) were adopted/refined for industry use.
This partnership promotes the EAI vision to establish a national authentication system
that can be accepted by both industry and all levels of government.
