Citizen Authentication

The process of creating digital identity for citizens is a complex area covering everything from consumer authentication to identity checks and assurance, as well as areas such as delegated access. It can be argued that citizen identity is where society and technology dovetail. This results in the design of citizen identity schemes being one of the most difficult digital identity challenges to solve. Layer onto that, the need for government to service wide-demographic needs and you have a perfect storm. Citizen identity requires great design and even better execution to balance the needs of usability with security.

This session will look at the challenges and available solutions to this highly problematic and complicated aspect of digital identity.
