Identity Standards: ISO 24760-1

I’m currently looking at international identity standards and thought that I might post some thoughts about them as I look at them. The first that I have looked at is ISO/IEC FDIS 24760-1:2011(E) “A framework for identity management – Part 1: Terminology and concepts”. This standard is supposed to define key terms for identity management and specify core concepts in identity and identity management. My view is that it should be avoided. The reasons for this are many: it is confused, it is unclear, and doesn’t use terms in the way that they are standardly used in the identity industry.
