Charter accepted by Leadership Council: 2019-07-12 Ad Hoc Meeting notes DRAFT

(1) WG NAME:
Federated Identity Resilient Ecosystem (FIRE) Work Group

The FIRE working group will extend the usability and adoption of the Identity Ecosystem framework and registry to help identity ecosystem participants and individuals with their identity and personal data management. A variety of identifiers appropriate for personal data must be trusted at a wide variety of relying parties and applied throughout different profiles. An Identity ecosystem requires reliable identity and federations of all sorts, and both highly structured and distributed identities. The IDEF (Identity Ecosystem Framework) and Identity Ecosystem Framework Registry can help achieve these goals by providing a framework and way to emphasize and measure identity services, and the extent to which they are adherent to the "guiding principles" including Privacy-Enhancing and Voluntary, Secure and Resilient, Interoperable, Cost-Effective and Easy To Use. The framework and tools are there for individuals to easily make good decisions about their online identity and in securing and sharing personal data. 

The FIRE Work Group will support a variety of activities as listed below and in our work list.

OUR COMMITMENT: All FIRE WG work products will adhere to the IDEF Framework and the guiding principles in all of its products including documents, systems and protocols (e.g., will be "FIRE-proof"), and we will implement our own best practices within our own technology and program development.
