ID DataWeb and SAFE-BioPharma Association Enter Partner Agreement to Enable Attribute Exchange, Federation, and Verification Services

SAFE-BioPharma Association
Posted on: 21 Dec 17

ID DataWeb and SAFE-BioPharma Association have entered into a partnership to certify DataWeb's Attribute Exchange Network (AXN™) under SAFE-BioPharma’s federation hub standard. Once certified, the AXN federation hub services will be available to the global SAFE-BioPharma community.

The SAFE-BioPharma® standards were established to ensure cybersecurity and identity trust within the global biopharmaceutical industry. The standards have broad applications within other sectors including healthcare and financial services. They define requirements for authentication (the process that proves the user's identity to computer systems) and for digital signing. Within the SAFE-BioPharma standard, individuals being assigned a cyber credential (a form of software) undergo an identity vetting process that creates a strong bond between the credential and the individual the credential represents. This bond allows relying parties to understand the risk of accepting the credential.

ID DataWeb’s AXN™ federation gateway services will enable critical interactions between SAFE-BioPharma members by making all SBP compliant credentials recognizable across the ecosystem. ID DataWeb’s identity security gateway services can be tailored for any SAFE-BioPharma member, and can be integrated easily into its existing identity infrastructure via open standards (e.g., SAML, OpenID Connect).

"Integrating the SAFE-BioPharma standards into our AXN™services provides SAFE-BioPharma members a new and highly secure level of identity assurance and interoperability. We believe this will provide compelling value to existing and prospective online services by enabling the ecosystem of community members to interoperate seamlessly with high levels of credential assurance while drastically lowering costs," said Dave Coxe, President & CEO, ID DataWeb.

SAFE-BioPharma standards and identity credentials are aligned with and recognized by the mature set of standards in use by all U.S. Federal Government agencies and in other cyber-communities. Users of SAFE-BioPharma compliant identity credentials benefit from a single, trusted, interoperable credential that can be used in many applications across participating ecosystems.

"This new partnership with ID DataWeb will facilitate trusted collaboration among healthcare companies of all sizes," said Mollie Shields-Uehling, president and CEO, SAFE-BioPharma Association.

SAFE-BioPharma Association, based in Tenafly, NJ, has been operational since 2005. ID DataWeb, based in Vienna, VA, was founded in 2011.

The SAFE-BioPharma® standards for digital identity and digital signatures are used in life science and health care.

SAFE-BioPharma® is a trademark of SAFE-BioPharma Association. Use of this trademark requires approval from SAFE-BioPharma Association.
