Identity Commons supports, facilitates, and promotes the creation of an open identity layer for the Internet, one that maximizes control, convenience, and privacy for the individual while encouraging the development of healthy, interoperable communities.
We act as a community information sharing hub, and catalyze community working groups at our semi-annual workshops. These groups work to develop the identity and social layers of the web. We create opportunities for both innovators and competitors, for both the big guy and the small fry to come together in a safe and balanced space.
We formed to facilitate information sharing and coherence this space and to support interoperability and convergence around open standards.
