The Domains of Identity

by Kaliya “Identity Woman” Young, MSIMS

Abstract:  The Domains of Identity outlines sixteen key categories of transactions  which cause personally identifiable information to be stored in databases. The purpose of this research is to address challenges of Identity Management that involve interactions of almost all people in almost all institutional/organizational contexts. Enumerating the sixteen domains and describing the characteristics of each domain is intended to clarify which problems arise and how they can be solved within each domain. Discussions of identity management are often confusing because they mix issues from multiple domains, or because they try unsuccessfully to apply solutions from one domain to problems in another. Part of the objective of this article is to eliminate this confusion and enable clearer conversations about identity management problems and solutions.
