Taxonomy for Vulnerable Populations’ Trusted Identity in Cyberspace

  1. Credentials that could be used to create a Trusted Identity in Cyberspace (some creds, like birth certs, that are not helpful in cyberspace have been deliberately ignored.)
    1. Pseudonyms are available to all from a variety of providers like Yahoo, Microsoft, etc. It is assumed that public facilities like libraries provide access to the internet.
    2. DMV certs is a broad term for identity certs issued by state and territorial (including the federal) governments that are recognized by http://www.aamva.org/
    3. Address for receiving physical mail or packages.
    4. Physical addresses are usually known to the USPS and vetted by state agencies, typically for welfare benefits, including educational as providing authorization for some particular benefit, like transportation passes. Typically state agencies require proofing by elements like these (2 required) in WA OSPI:
      1. Water/Electric/Gas or Power bill – NO PHONE OR CABLE BILL
      2. Escrow papers – in guardian’s name
      3. Rental agreement – in guardian’s name
    5. Voting cert, interesting that this is not typically accepted as proof of residency.
    6. Bank account, meaning any depository institution (for deposit of benefits like ss)
    7. Welfare eligibility certificate (usually a card, sometimes like a debit card)
    8. Anonymous debit card or other source of internet funds
  2. Populations (any citizen with a usable DMV and physical address, and their children, are excluded)
    1. Pre-school whose guardian is poorly credentialed (not clear why they need a TIC)
    2. Children under 13 are covered by COPPA
    3. K12 students who usually are asked for parents’ proof of residency, but have homeless exemptions guaranteed by the McKinney-Vento Act.
    4. Adult citizen without DMV cert but with a physical address
    5. Adult citizen with neither DMV nor physical address certification.
    6. Adult citizen that has reason to hide their physical address
    7. Adult citizen that has lost some rights, such as an ex-felon
    8. Adult citizen with behavioral issues that exclude them from some venues
    9. Adult non-citizen with some credentials
    10. Adult non-citizen with no credentials
    11. Anyone with no generally available internet connectivity.
