The Future of Identity Verification is Here

What is a Digital Identity?

A digital identity is a reusable, electronic proof of identity issued by a trusted authority with a known level of assurance. A digital identity provides much greater privacy and data protection than a traditional form of identification, such as a driver’s license. It’s cryptographically secured and allows consumers to release just the necessary data when verifying themselves.

“A trustworthy digitized world can only be created if both organizations and governments follow the proper framework.”

Who Issues Digital Identities?

Both the public sector and private companies are looking to offer reusable digital identities, with the aim of improving the verification process, reducing fraud and increasing data privacy. Current successful examples in the market today include Singpass and BankID.

Why Issue Your Own Digital Identity?

The reusable identity market size is expected to grow from USD 32.8 billion in 2022 to USD 266.5 billion by 2027. Similar to issuing a credit card, businesses are recognizing that they can tap into this market and offer a powerful new service to their customers by issuing them a digital ID they can use whenever identity verification is needed.
