While IBM outlines the future of identity in an extensive study of 4,000 adults across three regions, Canada is halfway in the future with a particular application – the travel industry. With its Known Traveller Digital Identity concept, the government of Canada is testing a new airport security and screening system that will allow travelers to digitize and share travel documents & biometric information and use an app to store & share that information with authorities in advance, allowing more time for pre-screening.
Key findings from the survey of 4,000 adults from across the US, APAC, and European consumers include:
Additionally, the average internet user in America manages over 150 online accounts that require a password, which is expected to rise to over 300 accounts in the coming years.
Forecasts indicate that cross-border travel will grow by 50% over the next decade and reach 1.8 billion international arrivals by 2030. However, to take full advantage of the economic opportunities this increase in demand generates, stakeholders must confront pressures on the traveler journey, particularly the increased risk and related security requirements, as well as the limited growth capacity of travel-and border-related infrastructure.
“This Known Traveler Digital Identity concept is founded on the principle that an individual traveler has control over the use of their own identity and its components. Due to this decentralization of control over the components of their identity, a traveler can push proof of their identity information – secured by distributed ledger technology and cryptography – to governmental and private-sector entities throughout their journey.
“Access to verified personal biometric, biographical and historical travel data will enable entities along the way to undertake an advanced risk assessment, verify travelers’ identities, and provide seamless access through biometric recognition technology. All of this can be achieved without the need to have personal data stored in one central database, which would pose too great a risk for stakeholders responsible for securely handling personal identity information.
“A working prototype of the concept demonstrating specific use cases will be showcased at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2018 to policy-makers, technology innovators, and business executives. Moving forward, the project will seek to implement a scalable pilot of the Known Traveller Digital Identity with partner governments.” – Liselotte de Maar, Managing Director, Travel Industry, Accenture Strategy, the Netherlands
