Identifying people before granting access to a secure environment seems like such an obvious security process. Yet, a website grants “secure” access to anyone that enters its URL.
Every browser can connect to a website and load a portal to secure service. Identification as a process has been removed from cybersecurity, weakening security.
Cybersecurity treats identification and authentication as a single event eliminating the ability to limit access to only authorized users. Worse, this process requires data from an unknown individual before it can be performed.
Existence is what is created when someone is present. In the real world wherever your body is, it creates a state-of-existence. The data, a driver’s license or other ID, is used to identify the body.
A “digital body” is used to create a digital state-of-existence. While an authorized individual is presenting their “digital body”, they exist for identification. The unique serialization of the digital body provides the method to identify the “digital body”.
A connection is granted only after identification takes place.
If identifying an INDIVidual before
granting access is important
Unknown individuals should never have access to any secure environment..
