This guide shows how a combination of the following can provide various levels of assurance around proving an identity:
the breadth of evidence
the strength of the evidence
the validation and verification processes carried out
a history of the user’s activity
The guidance aims to:
provide organisations with an understanding of the capabilities they will need to be able to demonstrate in order to perform identity proofing
provide information to independent assessment organisations so that benchmarks or profiles can be developed to support the independent assessment and certification of organisational and technical capabilities
establish a common framework establishing requirements for the validation and verification of the identity of individuals
