DIACC Briefing: Introduction to Identity Interoperability

Interoperability is crucial for developing efficient, sustainable, secure, and valuable identity ecosystems. Identity interoperability is the ability to share identity standards, frameworks, or protocols between identity systems or models, allowing computer systems or software to exchange and use identity information within and across organizational, regional, and national boundaries. Assurance frameworks, in particular, like the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework (PCTF), help to establish an expected baseline and frame of reference for both public and private sector digital identity capabilities while prioritizing user-centred design, privacy, security, and convenience of use.

The content herein has been developed with contributions from members of DIACC’s Innovation Expert Committee, including Consult Hyperion, the Digital Identity Laboratory of Canada, Autorité Des Marchés Financiers, Northern Block, Stonebridge Solutions, and Vaultie, with additional support from Accenture and Outlier Solutions.
