12 Trends Shaping Identity Management

Digital Identities Built on Blockchain

Distributed ledger platforms like Blockchain are being used widely for providing digital identities. On the business side, SecureKey, built on the IBM Blockchain, is the first digital identity network in Canada specifically for regulated industries. Shocard is a blockchain-powered IAM and SSO solution for enterprises.

Evernym is a digital identity platform for credit unions which is built not on Blockchain, but rather on Sovrin, an open-source distributed ledger platform. (Sovrin is built for the self-sovereign, decentralized exchange of 'verifiable claims.') 

Accenture and Microsoft teamed up to create a blockchain-based identity infrastructure for a United Nations effort to provide legal identification for the over one million individuals worldwide with no official identity documents, like refugees.  

At the RSA Conference last week, the Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology arm demoed Verified.Me, an identity management tool that separates login capabilities from attribute delivery using blockchain.

not only are they manageable, theyre fundamentally consumable from a price point
This item has monumental importance. For IAM and PAM to gain widespread acceptance it needed to become some what of a commodity amongst the different organziational sectors.
