Unravel Digital identity Technology

With more than 1.1 billion individuals with no formal evidence, countless technologies are evolving at a faster pace than ever and becoming more reasonable, making it possible for countries to overcome past paperwork-based approaches. However, it is becoming a challenge to understand and keep up the various technologies and advances especially in accordance with the digital identity system. Identification for Development (ID4D) launches a new technology landscape report that provides an overview of current and emerging technological trends in digital identity.    

Whether a country is strengthening existing ID systems or deploying new ID systems from facilities, technology options, when selected and deployed accordingly, it is possible to expand the registration size and validate # ID4D to help achieve the missing billions. Technology options can also allow identification systems that lead to tangible benefits across a wide range of sectors, such as including finance, health services, and social protection for the poorest and most vulnerable. The Technology Landscape Report # ID4D reminds us that additional factors and risk mitigation measures should be considered when choosing certain technology #digitalidentity. These include appropriate data protection and privacy needs, suppliers ' open and neutral standards, in line with cultural contexts, economic feasibility, and infrastructure constraints. "

Synthesize what seems like an endless supply of information, this new ID4D report provides a landscape of emerging and current technology options for digital recognition and helps readers understand how they work and which technologies can be useful in each stage of the digital identity lifecycle. This report also summarizes the challenges that each technology can and cannot solve and the key trends involved.

The report offers a framework to evaluate each technology according to multiple criteria, including the time of use, is easy to integrate with old and future systems and its interoperability with other technologies with the results presented in a color-coding manner. For example, fingerprint recognition is quite mature and has been widely adopted. Others are emerging and include contactless fingerprint recognition, newborn biometrics, or blockchain for identity management, still in beta.

Smartphones with built-in biometric sensors are becoming cheaper, with a global price decreased by 27% from 2010 to 2017. With smart mobile devices that support 4.8 BN biometrics projected in 2020, report # ID4D predicts that mobile identity and validation technologies will gain more importance, especially in developing countries.

Regardless of what technology is used, successful digital ID systems must be robust, inclusive and interactive, to ensure access to finance, healthcare, education and other important services and benefits of more than one billion people without proof of ID, as shown in # EveryID have a Story campaign. It is therefore important that the Government must adhere to the principles of identification for sustainable development: towards the digital era consider the fundamentals to maximize the benefits of recognition systems while minimizing risk and being 23 certified organizations.
