Digital identity – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Digital identity – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Digital identity

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Digital identity refers to the aspect of digital technology that is concerned with the mediation of people’s experience of their own identity and the identity of other people and things. Digital identity also has another common usage as the digital representation of a set of claims made by one digital subject about itself or another digital subject.

Wikipedia is a wonderful resource and also makes for quite interesting reading on a wide variety of topics. This article on Digital Identity comes across as pedantic and theoretical which reflects the difficulty of introducing the many complex concepts associated with understanding Digital Identity. It seems that we are in the early days of even agreeing on the concepts let alone establishing practical implementations that people can naturally relate to. A lot has been done but in my opinion this will continue to be a rapidly evolving field for some time to come.

Potentially a useful list of cryptography references.
