The Mydex Trust Framework is a set of legal and technical rules by which members of a network agree to operate in order to achieve trust online. At its core it delivers a trusted digital identity, a hyper secure personal data store and platform from which individuals can connect to each other and organisations for the bi-directional exchange of information in a secure and verified manner.
At its most basic level it allows individuals to present themselves online with a trusted identity and digital letterbox. These two key features alone represent dramatic savings for organisations in distribution and verification costs and whilst individuals securing access to their data in a format they can use and share effectively and are able to transact easily and conveniently online without the need for managing multiple usernames and passwords or risk over the web transactions.
All data sharing is undertaken using a standard data sharing agreement in which the specific data to be shared and the uses that can be made of it are defined and agreed between both parties with the individual being in control of the permissioning process. This polarity shift in the way in which individuals engage with organisations provides a stable easy to use, convenient and highly flexible yet secure utility for the individual and the organisations connecting with them.
As part of the Mydex Trust Framework is an open API which allows application developers and services providers signed up to the Mydex Trust Framework to offer value adding, applications and services to members. This creates a new ecosystem for innovation and new forms of engagement between organisations and individuals.
