Status: This document is a Kantara Initiative Recommendation, created by the IAWG WG (see section 3.8 of the Kantara Initiative Operating Procedures)

Abstract:
The Kantara Initiative Identity Assurance Work Group (IAWG) was formed to foster adoption of identity trust services. The primary deliverable of the IAWG is the Identity Assurance Framework (IAF); this document describes the IAF’s Assurance Assessment Scheme (AAS), a component of the IAF. The AAS consists of a set of requirements which assessors must fulfill in order to become ‘Kantara-Accredited’, a statement of applicable ‘credit’ granted to assessor applicants with certain prior-qualifications, a description of the Application processes from both the Kantara perspective and the applicant’s, and guidance on undertaking assessments which will benefit both Kantara-accredited Assessors and Credential Service Providers having their services assessed against the IAF Service Assessment Criteria (SAC), a key AAS subordinate document. These processes are underpinned by a number of agreements and records. The latest versions of each of these documents can be found on Kantara’s Identity Assurance Framework – General Information web page.
