Starts off considering the impact of the G20 summit in London on everyone else before taking a long view of the tensions between business and government drivers behind identity management
In summary, Phillip Virgo argues is if this is true:
- Identity management has been around since the Sumerians
- Distinct drivers exist – Business driver: support transactions & trust vs Government driver: Tax and control
- There is 25 years experience of commercial ID management experience to drawn upon
- Sustainability depends on the 5Rs: Responsibility, Registration, Repair, Revocation, Redress
Then: we can start thinking about using existing knowledge and integrating processes for ID management by government, thinking about least dangerous rather than optimum ways forward.
