Microsoft’s 5 Guiding Principles For Decentralized Identities

– Microsoft

Five standards that will guide Microsoft’s development of decentralized identity systems

Microsoft is progressing with its plan to establish a digital identity system, and is currently working on partnering with decentralized identity stakeholders to release a set of open standards. Here it lays out five principles that are guiding this effort, including that digital ID must be secure and privacy-protecting:

“My digital identity is under my control. It must only be used with my consent and when I consent; I must know who will use it and how it will be used.”

The other principles it covers are that digital identity must be inclusive and available to all, supervisory (for children and people who become incapacitated), and environmentally responsible.

We will strive to place user safety and security at the center of our decentralized identity system design
