The GTA will offer unique assessment and certification tools, in addition to an education forum to interact amongst families, technology providers and business leaders to share best practices, new trends and improved ways of offering services more securely and privately.

The Minors Trust Framework (MTF) is an online identity trust model, created under the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) Pilot Grant program, a White House initiative.
The MTF’s complete set of technical, operational, and legal policies enable MTF members to identify and sign up kids and their parents in a fast, safe and privacy enhancing manner. The MTF is consistent with NSTIC’s guiding principles of creating a secure, privacy enhancing identity ecosystem helping to protect minors and their parents’ personal information.
