IDPro® Body of Knowledge Publication Status

Crucial to IDPro’s mission and the future of the identity industry is a body of knowledge. It is meant to provide vendor- and technology-neutral guidance for practitioners of all tenures in all industries. The IDPro® Body of Knowledge (or BoK) is currently being built by IDPro members and volunteers.

The BoK is a “living document.” As of November 2021, here is the status of articles that are making their way through the BoK review and publication process:
