The Ubiquitous Credential - Government-issued Identity in Your Phone

This decade may well be labeled “the decade of the digital credential.” From COVID passports to mobile driver’s licenses, digitized credentials transforming to “born digital” credentials, and governments and large tech companies developing their own wallets, personal information has never been easier to share with the wave of a device. The convenience is amazing, and the privacy implications are terrifying.

Even scoping the issue down to government-issued credentials or credentials directly derived from government data, there are a variety of requirements feeding into this growing ecosystem:

In this session, Heather Flanagan and Mike Kiser will discuss the outcomes of the recently released white paper on government-issued credentials and the privacy landscape (publication date expected in April 2023). The issues at hand are not solely about policy, nor are they only about technology. It is about closing the policy and protocol gaps that exist between today’s disparate solutions and services and providing a vision of a privacy-preserving, globally viable privacy landscape.

Centralised or decentralised - what’s the real question?

There are clear battle lines drawn between the centralised and decentralised worlds, but how much of this is ideology and how much is simply a misunderstanding of how services are delivered, rights protected, and trust established? Both models have advantages and disadvantages but that doesn’t mean that one should simply replace the other.

Governments need data about us to plan services such as where schools and hospitals should be built or where the most vulnerable in society are so that they can be supported. That data can also be used to cause harm, but technology alone will not solve the problems of control, protection of basic rights, and the delivery of fair and fraud resistant services.

In this session Adam Cooper seeks to identify the real questions we should be asking and provides his own insights based on over a decade of working with governments, citizens, and the private sector to deliver better outcomes for all of us.
