- World Economic Forum (WEF) published an excellent report, A Blueprint for Digital Identity
- Trust::Data: A New Framework for Identity and Data Sharing, a collection of articles edited by Professor Pentland, Thomas Hardjono and David Shrier
- MIT’s Enigma project
"The WEF Blueprint for Digital Identity argued that financial institutions are well positioned to drive the creation of such digital identity ecosystems because they already serve as intermediaries in many transactions, are generally trusted by consumers as safe repositories of information and assets, and their operations, - including the extensive use of customer data, - are already rigorously regulated."
"Finally, as was the case with the Internet, government needs to play a leadership role in the creation of such highly complex identity ecosystems by supporting the required R&D, experimental testbeds, and legal frameworks."
