About Identity-discuss

This list is for discussion of the proposed IAB program on Wholistic Human-Oriented Discussions on Identity Systems (WHODIS). The WHODIS program is broadly looking at identity on the internet including: what types of identity mechanisms exist and where they are being developed, how they are used and misused to solve real world problems, and discover gaps and opportunities for technical solutions.
