What is the Open Integrity Index?

The Open Integrity Index will enable users to make sophisticated decisions about the tools they use for privacy and communications, without requiring a high-level security engineering background.

OII has several distinct objectives, including:

  • Enabling users to make educated decisions about the tools they use and the ways in which they expose their personal information.
  • Establishing a platform for the results of independent audits to be made accessible to a general audience.
  • Providing a resource for other platforms, such as application markets, to integrate digital security into the decision-making process of installing software.
  • Improving access to material on digital security principles in languages other than English.
  • Promoting stronger awareness on fundamental precepts of privacy by design in the development of communications tools.
  • Encouraging stronger relationships between developers and their communities of users.
