Hi OWASP Leaders: 

Please pass the following information on to your project and chapter members:

The KBA-MP Project seeks participants with identity management and/or standards development experience. Join here: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Knowledge_Based_Authentication_Performance_Metrics_Project

The KBAPM Project
There is a lack of standard performance metrics regarding the use of knowledge based authentication (KBA) for remote identity proofing. KBAPMP's goal is to establish standard performance metrics for knowledge based authentication.
What is Knowledge Based Authentication?
Knowledge-based authentication, commonly referred to as KBA, is a method of authentication which seeks to prove the identity of someone accessing a service, such as a website. As the name suggests, KBA requires the knowledge of personal information of the individual to grant access to the protected material. There are two types of KBA: "static KBA", which is based on a pre-agreed set of "shared secrets"; and "dynamic KBA", which is based on questions generated from a wider base of personal information.
KBAPM Project Supports the NSTIC Guiding Principles
KBAPM Project is dedicated to developing KBA Standards in alignment the the NSTIC Guiding Principle. To that end KBAPM Project has answered the IDESG Standards Committee Solicitation to develop Knowledge Based Authentication Performance Metric Standards.

For more information contact the Project Leader, Ann Racuya-Robbins, at arr at worldknowldegebank.com.
