Dibya Sarkar reports on a recent white paper issued by the National Electronic Commerce Coordinating Council.
“An organized, confederated system would not necessarily have as its goal to establish a single business model across all 50 states,” according to the white paper. “Rather, it could allow states to maintain their own processes, yet establish criteria to provide consistent levels of trust in the various credentialing systems that states have established. Determining exactly what metrics would result in such a trust, however, would be a considerable undertaking, but one worth investigating.”
I can’t seem to find a copy of this white paper online. If you find it, I’d welcome an email.
