Transparency

Technical transparency

The infrastructure and United ID Services are being built on high security and redundant server infrastructure and processes, ensuring users identities and passwords will not be compromised.

Liability

United ID Services will mainly focused on civil applications. The services will be offered with limited liability exposure and will have one legal non-profit entity in the US. All infrastructure is currently hosted outside the US.

Identity proofing

For applications with a need for stronger level of assurance, United ID Services will seek opportunities for collaboration with local public libraries and payment or notary service providers.

Industry independent

United ID Services will seek collaboration and partnerships with the range of e-services and strong authentication technology companies, but will strive for independence and fair industry competition.

One-time password authentication suppliers for United ID Services will need to support the standards for OATH (the Initiative for Open Authentication) and meet certain security and corporate ethical standards.

Financial transparency

United ID Services financial statements and annual reports will be open to public inspection and copying to the extent required by the Internal Revenue Code.

Future profits will be invested in growing the operations of United ID Services, and supporting non-profit initiatives. We will also enable United ID users to forward their donations to the recognized goodwill project of their own choice.
