SAFE Identity is an industry consortium and certification body supporting identity assurance and cryptography in healthcare to enable trust, security and user convenience. SAFE Identity plays a central role in enabling the high-assurance credentials that support the crucial purpose of identifying humans and machines across the health industry.
SAFE Identity's leadership team is composed of diverse experts from a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds. This breadth of expertise enables us to tackle the many complexities in the highly dynamic environment of digital identity. We facilitate innovative solutions through our community and our employees.
Identity is an essential part of the interconnected healthcare landscape, and when done right, can help with authentication, cryptographic digital signatures and strong encryption. But when not planned and implemented properly, digital identities can lead to risks and compromise sensitive data throughout the industry.
The main challenge with digital identities? Determining whether a digital identity truly represents the person or thing it claims to be.
SAFE Identity helps solve this challenge. Trusted digital identities are central to the protection of networks, data, and facilities. The core of SAFE Identity's value is our ability to maintain the essential policies and scalable services necessary to validate the digital identities that are used to gain access to health community networks around the world.
Our Trust Framework connects multiple credential providers and establishes an extensive industry-driven infrastructure that solves the identity needs of the health sector.
SAFE Identity also offers services that make relying on digital identities easier for your organization. Operators of hospital chains, laboratory networks, medical device companies, pharma companies, and contract research organizations can rely upon the SAFE Identity infrastructure to enable easier collaboration and greater security from digital identities.
SAFE Identity is the culmination of an 11-month overhaul of the SAFE-BioPharma Trust Framework, an entity that has been in operation for 15 years. Based on this framework and industry best practices, SAFE Identity certifies products to validate their ability to interoperate with the identities connected to SAFE as part of our Qualified Products List (QPL) program.
Confirming the validity of every identity accessing your network also requires simultaneous validation of the provider who issues that identity. Validation must happen- in real-time- every time a user asserts an identity before a person or device accesses your network's data and intellectual property. Robust and reliable identities are central to your network security. Providing solutions that address the use, validation, and integration of high assurance identities across the world is the purpose of SAFE Identity's offerings.
" We use our physical identities every day and rely on it immensely. It only makes sense to have a digital equivalent to sign documents, track your medical history and replace passwords for good. "
The integrity of digital credentials varies widely from one provider to the next. Figuring out who to trust, why to trust them and how their security aligns with your needs can be a challenge. This makes trust hard.
The SAFE Identity Trust Framework, carefully cultivated over 15 years, can make trust much easier. The Trust Framework defines the policies and standards necessary to use secure and interoperable digital credentials that meet your needs. Issuers certified by SAFE are compliant with these policies and standards, ensuring this same security and interoperability across the ecosystem – and making trust a lot simpler for you.
