"There is an emerging ecosystem of people, machines and organizations, using sharing and protecting elements of their identity via trusted infrastructures to get access to assets or to validate claims." [1]

Highlights from the Hype Cycle:

  • "Decentralized identity (DCI) standards have been in the making for years, and some large use cases...have shown success. However, global adoption still lags.
  • Entering the plateau is document-centric identity proofing (DCIP), an established method by organizations to verify a person’s claim to a real-life identity through verification of government-issued photo identity documents and comparison of them with selfies.
  • The Hype Cycle ends with social identities, an established form of digital identities for people managed by social media and digital consumer platforms." [2]
