SUMMARY

This report on digital identity and blockchain gives an overview of digital identity and digital systems and examines the opportunities that digital identitification offers to solve problems linked to traditional ID tokens. 

Some countries such as Estonia and Pakistan with their own ID programs have set up large-scale national identity systems to optimize service access for citizens with a single ID, the study notes. These systems have proved to be successful.

According to this document, digital identities can boost privacy and offer better security via mechanisms including multi-factor authentication.

The paper also takes a look at the risks associated with digital identity. It indicates that one of the main ones lies in the centralized storage of personally identifying information or credentials in that it becomes a target for data breaches. Another risk has to do with the ownership of the data by a single entity, the study explains.

The report includes a broad summary of answers to a study sent to a few well-known digital identity firms with strong sector presence and ID solutions. The paper aims at offering readers knowledge on key aspects of modern digital identities to take a look at and some of the relevant points which should be examined when assessing potential ID solutions.
