"Digital Identity Management Functions"

Definition for purposes of the Baseline Functional Requirements v1.0

"Digital identity management functions" means activities and services associated with identity management, as described in more detail in the IDESG Functional Model. The Functional Model generally sorts identity management activities and services into the following five categories (summarized at the links below, and discussed in more detail in the Functional Model, PDF link, starting at page 5):

Each IDEF Baseline Functional Requirement specifies which of these activities are likely to be relevant to that requirement. The IDESG SALS self-assessment program and those Requirements are designed to be relevant to those activities. A party that does not conduct any of the foregoing activities may find that the SALS guidance is of limited use.


Appendix A to the Baseline Requirements, which is incorporated into the IDESG Glossary, provides the following definition:

DIGITAL IDENTITY MANAGEMENT FUNCTIONS: includes each of the functions described in the IDESG Functional Model (registration, credentialing, authentication, authorization, and intermediation), which also encompass enrollment, identity proofing, identity vetting, access control, attribute management, transaction processing, and identity data maintenance.
