Identity is one of those unique topics that matters to every human being on the planet. The need for a user-centric, privacy-protecting good identity lies not only with the 1+ billion people who still do not have a formal identification, but also with those who have a proof of identity whose data is currently scattered across data collection platforms or large centralized databases vulnerable to privacy breaches and prohibiting user agency, control and benefits.
At the Digital Identity workshop held at the 2019 NetHope Summit last month, global NGOs and partners discussed what good identity is; reviewed lessons learned from several identity implementations focused on refugees, health service, and national ID; and began exploring the routes to implementing good digital ID. When exploring barriers and pathways to scale, NGOs called for more standardization on technology tools to enable procurement and interoperability.
In this session, join representatives from ID2020 and Norwegian Church Aid for an introduction to ID2020's Certification Mark and Technical Requirements, a set of guidelines that can help NGOs evaluate and navigate procurement of digital identity systems. ID2020s Certification Mark and Technical Requirements outline the goals a digital ID system must achieve in order to deserve the denomination good ID - ID that is privacy-protecting, user-managed, portable, persistent, with good guardianship options.
