Potential problems

One of the major features of strong authentication of an individual's identity is a proofing process where existing documentation is used to establish identity. Some of the factors that limit an individual's access include:

  • Some regulations exclude proofing documents issued outside of the local government jurisdiction.
  • Many identity providers require payment of one sort or another.
  • Some cultures do not trust the identity providers, even when they are citizens of the locality.
  • Some foreign nationals may not be able to obtain local documentation.
