Four More Laws
Noted. In Four More Laws of Identity, Fen Labalme would add four more laws to Kim Cameron's initial seven laws of identity.
The entity (often a person) using an online digital identity system must be in total control of their information. This implies that not only the data but also the access protocols and authorization mechanisms must not be encumbered by someone else's (IP) rights, unless such restrictions were previously - and explicitly - agreed to.
An identity system should be decentralized.
Bridges must exist - or be straightforward to create - between identity systems so that users are not locked into a single provider.
11. TransparencyFen's conclusion is similar to what Dave Kearns has been highlighting (in Is it time for the personal directory? and The need for a personal directory) -- that some form of personal directories or SuperProfiles are the way to go.
There should be a clear and (if desired) visible cause and effect relationship in all identity related transactions.
