Zack Martin will moderate “It’s all about the (identity) attributes” at the Internet Governance Forum USA on July 21, 2022.

Digital identity comprises several pieces of data, and critical to these are identity attributes – name, address, identification number, photo, eye color, etc. Identity attributes have the potential to change the way digital identity systems work, by providing just the necessary data to enable access instead of large amounts of information that may not be necessary for an organization to know. Data attributes can be issued by multiple organizations and asserted via many mechanisms. This discussion will look at the current state of digital identity and attributes, some of the different technologies that are going to be used by individuals to assert them – such as mobile driver licenses and blockchain – and the potential privacy advantages of attributes.
