What is A Federated Digital Identity?
A federated identity is the result of linking a consumer’s digital identity and the attributes, which are stored across multiple, unrelated identity management systems. This digital identity can help provide a better consumer experience and better protection from identity theft.
Consumer digital expectations and experiences
It takes balance to meet consumer expectations, while protecting against identity fraud. Account freezes due to false suspicious behavior leave consumers with a bad experience that can negatively impact relationships. Consumers must type in personal information to complete their first transaction or establish an account. More than ever, consumers consider security to be an upmost priority when transacting online. According to a recent RSA study:
- 55% of consumers choose payment providers they trust
- 59% of consumers only use companies they trust
Digital identity brings balance
Identity verification through a universal digital identity enables commerce and establishes trust between parties who do not know each other. Businesses need confident consumers to grow transactions. And they need the assurance that customers are who they say they are.
When a business cannot ensure they know who they’re doing business with digitally, they expose themselves to considerable risk. For starters, businesses need strategic, digital identity capabilities that are not modeled on a single device or channel, but work to resolve an identity across a myriad of digital touch points and information. Ingredients for comprehensive digital identity include:
- Physical attributes (ie. Biometrics)
- Government legal documentations (ie. DL)
- Behavioral (spending habits or transactions)
The future is now…enhanced security and convenience with digital identity and online authentication
