The wave of security breaches that has exposed personal information of millions of people around the world is pushing governments and industry to come up with a better way to identify people. One approach that is being examined is federated identity management that would be based on a worldwide online data exchange of identities with one sign-in that would allow people to access their many online accounts across numerous systems.

Ryan Wilk, VP of Customer Success at NuData Security:

“Smaller countries or countries where they are already used to a federal or national ID –  this will be very doable. We can agree, from a corporate standpoint, that we need better and more convenient ways to identify citizens and to facilitate services across borders, while ensuring security. Physical biometrics is a powerful way to authenticate the identity of the person you are dealing with, but there is still work to be done to unify citizen’s identities across borders and governmental entities.”
