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), which comprises several documents that detail the levels of assurance, and the certification program that bring the Framework to the marketplace. The IAF comprises primary documents such as this Overview publication, the IAF Glossary, a summary Assurance Levels document, and an Assurance Assessment Scheme (AAS), which encompasses the associated assessment and certification program, as well as two secondary documents: the Service Assessment Criteria (SAC), which establishes baseline criteria for general organizational conformity, identity proofing services, credential strength, and credential management services against which all CSPs will be evaluated; and the Assessor Qualifications and Requirements which provides an
Kantara Initiative Recommendation overview of the requirements which applicant assessors must fulfill in order to become Kantara-Accredited Assessors. This present document provides an overview of the IAF documents and program.
