Kantara's slew of announcements in September continued into October. Kantara's conformity assessment, assurance, approval and Trust Mark program continues to draw global recognition, largely reflected in the new members joining last month - Exostar, Mastercard International, Oxyliom Solutions from the EMEA and the US Federal Government's GSA.  The latter's rejoining provided a useful platform to launch a regular call cadence amongst representatives from the Australian, NZ and US agency members of Kantara that operate government-run digital identity services. Such indicators, along with the recent Kantara - SAFE Identity press announcement to cross-recognize each other's Trust Marks at full service equivalencyequivalency for new approvals going forward, are early signs of maturation of the digital identity ecosystem and hopefully the sunset on the 'gold rush' phase that has thwarted it in recent years.
