Description: Using a Digital ID needs to be delightful, not painful. Creating digital wallets full of digitized versions of real-world credentials and then leaving the user to work out which credentials, or parts of credentials, are needed for each transaction is not good enough. The user’s Digital ID must be intelligent, able to accept ‘the rules’ for a transaction and work out how to fulfill those rules on behalf of the user without the user needing to understand this complicated back-end. If that means getting a credential the user does not currently have, the intelligent Digital ID should assist the user to get it. If it means combining information from several credentials to meet data minimized needs. Either way, the intelligent Digital ID must be the assistant that guides the user through the process with their consent. This session will look at what an Intelligent Digital ID is, and how these kinds of trust frameworks and standards must be designed to support Intelligent Digital ID.
