A few years ago, we realised that for those not within the field, the world of digital identity is a bit of an enigma. Then we realised that we’re in as good a position as any to do something about that. So we went about researching, collaborating and creating something that we hope will help: our Digital Identity Toolkit. What is the Digital Identity Toolkit? This Toolkit is a collection of everything you need to know about digital identity. We’ve covered topics from identity basics to examples of how digital identity is used in the real world.
