Publication of CAN/DGSI 103-3: Shaping the Future of Digital Trust and Identity

OTTAWA – The Digital Governance Standards Institute (DGSI) is proud to announce the publication of CAN/DGSI 103-3: Digital Trust & Identity – Part 3 – Digital credential management system. This innovative standard sets forth the essential requirements for digital credential management systems. It provides a comprehensive framework for the management, storage, presentation, and verification of machine-readable digital credentials.

The standard establishes guidelines for the creation, distribution, and ongoing management of digital credentials, defines best practices for their secure storage, and provides protocols for reliable verification.

In an increasingly digital landscape, where trust and security are paramount, these credentials play a vital role in ensuring secure and trusted interactions. CAN/DGSI 103-3 represents a significant milestone in enhancing the digital trust ecosystem, offering organizations, individuals, and service providers a framework for fostering trust in digital interactions.

“As the digitization of our economy accelerates, public trust needs to be front and center as products and services are developed. There are compelling reasons for public and private sector organizations to ensure the trustworthiness of their digital systems and to ensure confidence in digital interactions of their clients and citizens. The National Standard of Canada codifies lessons-learned and conceptual refinements based on the practical experience and knowledge of the stakeholders.”
