Identity is one of those unique topics that matters to every human being on the planet. The need for a user-centric, privacy-protecting “good” identity lies not only with the 1+ billion people who still do not have a formal identification, but also with those who have a proof of identity whose data is currently scattered across data collection platforms or large centralized databases vulnerable to privacy breaches and prohibiting user agency, control and benefits.

At the Digital Identity workshop held at the 2019 NetHope Summit last month, global NGOs and partners discussed what ‘good identity’ is; reviewed lessons learned from several identity implementations focused on refugees, health service, and national ID; and began exploring the routes to implementing “good” digital ID. When exploring barriers and pathways to scale, NGOs called for more standardization on technology tools to enable procurement and interoperability.

In this session, join representatives from ID2020 and Norwegian Church Aid for an introduction to ID2020’s Certification Mark and Technical Requirements, a set of guidelines that can help NGOs evaluate and navigate procurement of digital identity systems. ID2020’s Certification Mark and Technical Requirements outline the goals a digital ID system must achieve in order to deserve the denomination “good” ID - ID that is privacy-protecting, user-managed, portable, persistent, with good guardianship options.

This webinar will cover:

  • What are ID2020 Certification Mark and Technical Requirements?
  • How can NGOs, governments, and corporations leverage the ID2020 Certification Mark to navigate the procurement process?
  • How are ID2020’s Technical Requirements being used today in our sector? What are the lessons learned? For example: Norwegian Church Aid will share how the DIGID consortium (Norwegian Red Cross, Save the Children Norway, Norwegian Refugee Council, Norwegian Church Aid) used the Technical Requirements and Certification Mark to foster ideation, market dialogue and qualified contributors for their “Dignified Identity (in cash programming)” pilot RFP.
