Digital identity is the key to inclusiveness and participation in the digital economy. Fake online identities can be used to manipulate what we see online and influence community opinion but it is also a challenge for commercial services. Providing a solution for establishing absolute identity is often considered a role for government but most of the digital economy does not have access to these services and demand for solutions to mitigate fraud and risk for commercial service providers are in high demand. This Identity Hangout will discuss the strategies being used to control the impact of fake online identities and opportunities for accelerating the digital economy by improving the integrity and availability of digital identity solutions.
