The UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework (DIATF) is a set of standards and best practices designed to enable the creation and use of digital identities for a wide variety of applications. Its purpose is to provide reliable digital identity or attributes to the third party that knows nothing about the individual. This is a key priority of the UK Government’s strategy and has been designed to enable innovation, competition and provide transparency, service providers can become independently certified.
The UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework is relevant to Identity Service Providers, Attribute Service Providers, Orchestration Service Providers, and Relying parties. Certification is a requirement for the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for digital vetting. Certification is also strongly encouraged for those involved in Home Office Right to Work and Right to Rent.
