- defines a digital identity for a natural person for the contextual processing by information systems and machines;
- sets the background for all the other components needed to use and utilize the digital identities within a decentralized data economy, such as consent, logging, data transport, services, etc;
- focuses on providing a solid and focused background to deliver a practical approach for future development and still covers the digital identity definitions from a wide enough perspective to not limit its use in today’s needs, technologies or industrial use cases;
- produces a neutral, objective and generic definition for all humans that can then be scaled up based on the industry, use case and technology it is applied to based on this core definition;
- covers also the basic mechanisms for use in the digital services (contextual use), trust and identity management that are within the scope of the digital identity itself;
- defines a well-considered overview on the individual’s digital properties, their usage and needed core processes for further consideration on standardization; and
- describes the need for truly decentralized identity for every human being in the digital age.
