Identity Assurance Framework


Identity Assurance Framework (IAF) was work from Liberty Alliance began in 2008 which detailed four Identity Assurance Level designed to link trusted identity-enabled enterprise, social networking and Web applications together based on business rules and security risks associated with each level.

The four Level Of Assurance were outlined by a 2006 document from the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

The level of assurance provided is measured by the strength and rigor of the Identity Proofing process, the credential's strength, and the management processes the service provider applies to it.

These four assurance levels were adopted by UK, Canada, and United States government services.
