the vanguard of protecting consumer digital identity and privacy.”
Through the FDX API, technical frameworks and a commitment to the five
principles of consumer control, access, transparency, traceability and
security of financial data, FDX is working to unite the financial industry
around a single, interoperable and royalty-free standard for secure and
convenient consumer and business access to their financial data.
Kantara is a community of individuals and organizations with a common
societal purpose to give control of personal data back to people through
specification and conformance scheme development focused on digital
identity and privacy. It is the only organization focused on both privacy
and digital identity.
"Kantara’s and FDX’s missions are synergistic, especially in our advocacy
for data traceability” said Colin Wallis, executive director, Kantara
Initiative. “The Consent Receipt specification
<https://t.e2ma.net/click/r4bj9c/vfbxtj/zaiaim> is a strategic commitment –
and we expect it to be the first in a range of developments using Kantara’s
