Digital ID enables individuals and entities to truly control their digital identities, independent of any central authorities or intermediaries. By definition, it’s an immutable foundation for self-sovereign identity, empowering users with ownership, privacy, and control over their personal data.
At their core, Digital IDs are globally interoperable and verifiable through cryptography. They are designed to be portable across a vast array of systems and platforms. In other words, you can take your Digital ID wherever you go, across any service you wish to access. Unlike traditional identifiers like email addresses or usernames, Digital IDs are not tied to any specific service or organization, which are often centralized and subject to a litany of cybersecurity risks.
