Mission

TagVault.org is the neutral not-for-profit certification authority for software tagging, primarily focused on software identification tags (as specified by ISO/IEC 19770-2) and software entitlement tags (as specified by ISO/IEC 19770-3). By providing a trusted normalization and validation process for software identification and software entitlement definitions to software publishers, tool providers, and end-users, the expensive and complicated issue of software asset governance/compliance will be greatly simplified.

TagVault.org will:

  1. Provide a structure to normalize and validate  software products and software publishers that provide 19770-2, 19770-3 or other software identification tags, tools that utilize these tags and operating systems that provide management facilities for software identification tags.
  2. Provide certification marks to member organizations in good standing for use in their marketing literature and packaging.
  3. Promote the Members of the Organization as well as the benefits of certified products to the general market place.
  4. Advance the adoption, use and evolution of inter-operable, internationally-accepted standards, specifications and guidelines for a certifiable process of reconciliation for software assets.
  5. Enable organizations and individuals from the software industry, enterprise users of licensed software, and service providers attendant to the software and software services supply chain to collaborate globally on development and sharing of central, standardized infrastructure for software tags using a process that is open, democratic and sustainable; and
  6. Support users of standardized software tagging tools and technology by providing or sponsoring Security, SAM and other IT tagging related standards, service publications, professional events and technology development.
