What is digital identity?

 

A digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for the digital world, similar to a person's identity for the real world.

Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to uniquely identify a person online or offline.

 

  • It can include attributes such as a unique identity number, social security number, name, place, and date of birth, citizenship, biometrics, and more, as defined by national law.

  • With specific credentials (a unique ID number like in India, a mobile ID like in Finland or Estonia, or an eID card like in Spain or Portugal), it can be used to authenticate its owner. These credentials may also include a digital identity certificate to sign electronically (give consent), obtain a seal (protect integrity), and a stamp (set time).
