Keeping pace with rapid technological change
Requirements for digital identity issuers, holders and verifiers are changing at a rapid pace. Decision makers in government need to make wise choices when selecting future-proof technologies that will allow long-term scalability and sustainability.
- The adoption of globally-agreed common open standards is key to enable interoperability between public and private services, which is crucial for governments to offer access to everyone, regardless of location or technology.
- Frictionless access to services, regardless of platform, wallet type or location, opens up limitless possibilities for the average person to benefit from smooth and flexible consent-based management of online and offline credentials.
- It also allows government issuers to easily add, update and revoke credentials at any moment throughout the identity lifecycle, ensuring optimal operational effectiveness for issuers, holders and verifiers.
