Janrain Announces Support for FICAM OpenID 2.0 Profiles

By Max Spector | Posted on January 16, 2012

Janrain is happy to announce that websites can now achieve FICAM-compliant site authentication through Janrain Engage. FICAM is a U.S. government-wide initiative that seeks to reform and standardize the transmission and storage of digital credentials for online users via secure authentication and external identity management.

Janrain leverages the OpenID 2.0 specification to act as an abstraction layer between a website and the identity provider. Janrain Engage makes it turnkey to achieve FICAM compliant authentications by

  • ensuring that users login to the website using one of the OIX Certified identity providers such as Google, PayPal, or VeriSign
  • requesting and verifying that FICAM policies were applied to the authentication
  • providing the option to filter out all personally identifiable information(PII) stored in the user’ s social or commerce identity before completing the authentication transaction

Janrain Engage dramatically reduces the total cost of implementing and maintaining a FICAM compliant authentication system for your website. To learn more please contact Janrain.
