What is digital ID?

 

Digital ID (digital identity) namely the online individual identity credentials. Differ from paper-based identity credential like driver’s licenses, passport and ID card, digital ID can be authenticated over digital channels. Authentication can be carried out from the use of biometric data to passwords, PINs, or smart devices and security tokens.

 

What Is The Value of Digital ID?

 

The World Bank estimates that nearly 1 billion people who lack a legal identification among 7.6 billion people in the world, and 3.4 billion people own legal identification but have a limited space to use it digitally. And there are 3.2 billion people who have legal identification and engage in the online economy but fail to easily use their digital ID.

 

Within the backdrop, digital ID can solve the problem that people without legal identification, attribute to the digital ID system will collect and validate attributes to establish a person’s identity and even provide corresponding identity credential. Besides, digital ID allows more people to efficiently participate in the digital economy with legal identification and right reason, reduce fraud and even more simplify interactions between individuals, governments and businesses.

How To Build Trusted Digital ID System?

 

In fact, a trusted digital ID system relate to relevant required technology contains Internet connectivity and biometric. Three general steps are also essential, that is, capture, verify and digitalize.

 

Capture. Personal identity attributes should be captured, include but not limit passport, driving licenses, ID cards, fingerprint, face image or iris. That means the data capture terminal should at least support the above function.

 

Verify. identity verification designed to verify the authenticity of what end-user provide and validates if the person is who they claim to be. This may require data comparison while biometric with its unique characteristic would be the most reliable methods. The higher level of the biometric identity device, the more accurate effect can be obtained.

 

Digitalize. A digital ID could be built after personal biometric data and identity document is successfully matched. Going forward, user can easily access to any service they require with their digital ID by simply presenting the requested biometric attribute, such as fingerprint, face, iris, etc.
