ID2020 Announces Inaugural Class of Certified Digital ID Solutions

ID2020 announced plans to launch the first certification mark for digital identity at the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The ID2020 Certification Mark recognizes digital identity solutions that adhere to the highest standards for user-management, privacy-protection, portability, and interoperability.

Globally, one in seven people are unable to prove their identity through any recognized means. As a result, they lack access to basic legal protections and social services, are unable to participate fully as citizens and voters, and are systematically excluded from the modern economy.
