Continue discussion on what it will take to get high assurance identity credentials into widespread use by consumers.

A preliminary list of criteria for deployment and adoption of high assurance identity credentials might start as follows:

  • Incentives/motivation for service providers / relying parties to use strong authentication for protection of high value, consumer-facing accounts and resources.
  • Business drivers for identity providers that can issue high assurance credentials to consumers.
  • Need for rigorous identity proofing prior to issuing high assurance credentials, versus a need for strong authentication technology only.
  • Authentication form factors that are usable and convenient for consumers to use.
  • Consumer education / awareness.


  1. General discussion of criteria for deployment and adoption of high assurance identity credentials for consumers
  2. Reiterated importance of usability/ease of use of identity technologies for consumers
  3. Discussed pros and cons of banks, motor vehicle agencies acting as identity providers for digital consumer identities
