What is the Open Integrity Index?
The Open Integrity Index enables 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.
