Building Effective Identity Foundations

For credentials to be secure not only does the document itself need to be of high quality but there needs to be systems to ensure only the right people are gaining access to them. This session will explore how we can provide everyone with a legal identity while also making sure only those with rights to those identity documents can access them.
