This panel took place on 16 February 2022. 

In the New Economy of Movement, Federated Networks are a necessity to manage digital identities, trusted data sharing, and business automation. MOBI and MEF are collaborating to create the Integrated Trust Network, or ITN, a member-owned and operated protocol-agnostic digital infrastructure that provides the core trust services of governance, authority, identity, and assurance.  

At its core, ITN is about joint value creation. It is designed to easily integrate with existing systems across all industries. The ITN vision is to become the trust infrastructure of choice for businesses and industry consortia seeking to create new revenue streams and reduce operational costs. Organizations and consortia are invited to join the member-owned and operated ITN to provide a new trust infrastructure for the Internet and create new business models.

Watch the video above to hear the panelists give a comprehensive inside look into the Integrated Trust Network and how it aims to unlock trusted business automation across industries, including a must-watch live Q&A session!
