Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Recommendation on Electronic Authentication and OECD Guidance for Electronic Authentication
The Recommendation on Electronic Authentication and the Guidance for Electronic Authentication have been developed by the OECD Committee for Information, Computer and Communications Policy (ICCP), through its Working Party on Information Security and Privacy (WPISP).
Electronic authentication provides a level of assurance as to whether someone or something is who or what it claims to be in a digital environment. Thus, electronic authentication plays a key role in the establishment of trust relationships for electronic commerce, electronic government and many other social interactions. It is also an essential component of any strategy to protect information systems and networks, financial data, personal information and other assets from unauthorised access or identity theft. Electronic authentication is therefore essential for establishing accountability online.
