Global perspectives on digital identity management and biometrics

New technologies can play a crucial role in bridging the global identity crisis and ensuring legal identity for all (1.5 billion people throughout the world lack legal identity).Countries need holistic birth to death systems. Biometric systems that start at 16 or 18 years risk fake identity data contamination unless there are safeguards toensure birth data “follows” someone to the point of adult registration in the biometric system.
