About Open Identity Exchange; Open Identity Exchange is about trust at Internet scale. Open identity technologies like OpenID and Information Cards reduce the friction of using the Web, much like credit cards reduce the friction of paying for goods and services.  However, they also introduce a new problem: who do you trust? In other words, how does a relying party know it can trust credentials from an identity service provider without knowing if that provider’s security, privacy, and operational policies are strong enough to protect the relying party’s interests?  This is not a technology problem. It is a business, legal, and social problem. That's the problem OIX was formed to solve.
