Overview#Kantara Trust Framework is a complete set of contracts, regulations or commitments that enable participating actors to rely on certain assertions by other actors to fulfill their information security requirements.
Kantara Trust Framework came out of the US FICAM and NIST SP 800-63 material, but is not US-specific. Kantara Trust Framework has approved assessors that approve organizations under that trust framework. A key motivation for doing this is actual FICAM acceptance, which is valuable for (likely) being accepted sight unseen by the US General Services Administration. There’s work ongoing to map US and UK trust frameworks.
