Proceedings of the 3rd Annual PKI R&D Workshop in Gaithersburg, April 2004.
This paper presents a novel architecture for digital identity management. The proposedvarchitecture is highly secure and scales seamlessly across organizational boundaries, while at thevsame time protecting the privacy interests of individuals and organizations. To achieve thesevproperties, the architecture heavily relies on Digital Credentials, a cryptographic authentication technology specifically designed to allow data subjects and organizations to securely co-manage identity-related information. We also examine the use of the new architecture in the context of three emerging information-sharing applications: Electronic Health Record management, E-Government, and Digital Rights Management.
