Identity Mixer - overview
We all use electronic services increasingly often in our daily lives. To do so, we have no choice but to provide a range of personal information for authorization and billing purposes, or as part of the terms and conditions of service providers. Dispensing all this personal data erodes our privacy and puts us at risk that criminals could abuse this information.
IBM Identity Mixer is a cryptographic protocol suite for privacy-preserving authentication and transfer of certified attributes. It allows user authentication without divulging any personal data. Thus, no personal data is collected that needs to be protected, managed, and treated according to complex legal regulations. Nevertheless, service providers can rest assured that their access restrictions are fully satisfied.
