Abstract

The worldwide introduction of Passports presents a unique opportunity for the online identity community to implement trustworthy identity providers. The Passport provides citizens with a strong authentication token within a global Public Key Infrastructure backed by government administrations. This paper studies the possibilities for leveraging the Passport for user-centric identity and reports on an experiment in which Passports are combined with the user-centric identity management framework Information Card. Note that no changes to already deployed Passports are needed for our solution to work.
