Trustmarks for Digital Identity Management Guidance Document

This guidance document was developed by IMSAC, and recommended to the Secretary of Technology, to provide information or guidance of general applicability to the public for interpreting or implementing the Electronic Identity Management Act (the Act).  Specifically, the document establishes minimum specifications and standards for trustmarks in digital identity systems, pursuant to the Act.

The minimum specifications and standards defined in this document have been developed to align with international standards, specifically Regulation (EU) No. 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014. Reference also has been given to the trustmark framework and governance model developed by the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) during its pilot project under the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC).

The document assumes an identity trust framework will address the business, legal, and technical requirements for each distinct digital identity system. The document focuses on trustmarks for identity trust framework operators and digital identity systems. Separate IMSAC guidance documents in this series define minimum specifications for other components of a digital identity system.

The proposed guidance documents are also available with comments and proposed changes by IMSAC on the VITA website:
