… Robust Digital ID systems, if developed in a highly interoperable and scalable manner, can produce savings for citizens, government and businesses. Conversely, disparate initiatives and siloed investments in Digital ID systems are likely to be wasteful and duplicative, detracting from the far-reaching public and private sector implications of universal Digital IDs. Pooled approaches and federated ID systems at the regional or sub-regional level can also help strengthening the value proposition of Digital IDs programs. Trust in data security will be critical to achieving tangible results. The robustness and interoperability of an identification system depends on the degree to which it adheres to technical standards—henceforth “standards.”

Standards establish universally understood and consistent interchange protocols, testing regimes, quality measures, and best practices with regard to the capture, storage, transmission, and use of identity data, as well as the format and features of identity credentials and authentication protocols. They are therefore crucial at each stage of the identity lifecycle, including enrollment, validation, deduplication, and authentication. Standards help ensure that the building blocks of identity systems are interoperable and testable, and can meet desired performance targets. The effectiveness of an interconnected and interoperable identification system cannot be ensured without standards. …
