Case studies on distributed identity - September 2003
Distributed identity is being considered as a privacy positive alternative to national identification schemes (such as the failed Australia Card). The paper argues that while distributed identity may be a reasonable alternative to national identification schemes, distributed identity is not necessarily a privacy positive initiative in its own right. The level of privacy intrusion depends on numerous technical factors and the effective management of privacy issues during design, implementation and the active life of distributed identity systems.
Galexia continues to conduct research on distributed identity systems. These case studies and the accompanying power point presentation provide a brief introduction to the field.
