Welcome! Reliable Identities, a registered enrollment agent, is sponsoring your Provisional Certificate enrollment.  Let's go over the steps by which you'll establish your reliable identity and the privacy protection mechanism called MyOwnInformation that will enable you to control the use of personal information that is associated with your new identity credential.

  1. First, we'll create something called a "Provisional Certificate," a digital certificate that contains only your email address.

  2. If you don't already have an OpenID we'll create one for you.

  3. Since we'll be assisting you in establishing your claim of ownership of information about yourself, we will need a license from you to use some of that information in the process. After all, it's your information, not ours, and we need your permission to use it. (Shouldn't everyone treat your information that way?) So after we create your Provisional Certificate we'll create your Personal Nondisclosure Agreement.

  4. Then we'll digitally sign your PersonalNDA.

  5. Ownership of information is accomplished with two legal devices: copyright and trade secret. Since copyright law covers collections of information called "works," your information will take the form of an autobiographical reference work, a collection of facts about yourself, starting with a few items of information that will be requested (under NDA) today.

  6. We will ask you some questions that will substantiate your claim of identity.

  7. After you successfully answer those questions we will create a second certificate, an identity certificate that can be relied upon by those who need to know that you are really who you say you are.

  8. Your identity certificate will be stored in your browser. Since Osmio never obtains private keys, we will give you instructions on how to make a backup copy of the key that goes with your identity certificate.

So our first step will be to get you a Provisional Certificate.
