Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:
Session 2: Identity for All
- How can we address these situations with technology
- recognition w/o tracking -- not storing direct biometrics
- identify abuser/explain (eg an abuser is in an aid organization)
- revocation of contributed identity
- identity reconstruction
- trust waterfall
- Adaptation to local tech situation
Recognition w/o Tracking
- Cancellable biometrics
-- store template not actual picture
-- ISO industry standard for this - SC 37
- - Name is changing from "cancellable biometrics" to something
- guardianship of credentials in the cloud -- SpacemanID
-- "paper sovereign" or series of words
Readouts from Breakout Groups
Privacy vs Belonging
- tensions between privacy and need to belong
- local laws will require certain disclosure - this is a reality
- disclosing more than legal minimum becomes a need for convenience
- self-sovereign identity - what techniques can be applied for preserving privacy in that legal context
-- facial recognition: emerging trend that invades this sense of privacy
-- other modalities such as 2d face or 1 finger makes sense for some things but 3d face or iris are important for others
--- best practice is to store as little as possible in actual databases, eg identifier + template only
Recognition without Tracking
- Looked at a use case:
- European refugee management - discussion on organization and efficiency versus privacy, in certain circumstandces privacy may need to be given up in pursuit of getting urgent access to services
- What is more important? Immediate support or maintaining privacy, even if technology is amazing?
- Legal situation when someone applies for status multiple times in multiple jurisdictions - what happens if someone has already enlisted to start the process? if they are rejected? Should that information be shared?
In the case of doctors without borders - if medical record is created, could that record be linked to the person as they travel through camps?
Trust Waterfall - another word for web of trust
-- Use case for migrant workers trying to get credit
- two things to counter abuse in a peer-to-peer systems
1) ZKP zero knowledge proofs - I can attest to abuse without being identified
2) Notable member of community/chief of tribe can influence reputation positively
