“The importance of standards is well established. Making sure systems and components from different manufacturers work together is essential.

In the identity world there are long-established standards but they haven’t been without their share of problems. On one side, you have programmers slightly tinkering with the specifications, which impacts interoperability. And on the other side, you have products and systems that can be submitted to third-party test labs for certification – a process that is timely and expensive.”

Self-certification is a great idea that will accelerate the growth of interoperability, but the internal and external security and privacy breaches will continue – especially in environments where there is high risk for crime, theft, and the compromise of personal data and information.
