Francisco Robles 2022-08-26 08:16Z Good post! I thought about this quite a bit. It would be nice to rethink the whole online identity topic actually. My previous thoughts were more into having a public email service. I thought of it as the government of the country could create an email per person, as we have physical IDs, but for online identity. If the password (and other security measures like MFA) would be forgotten/lost, we could recover that in government/police offices, and it would be free to every citizen for his whole lifetime. This would allow online services to really trust who you are just with your email address, as if you were using your eID, and the government could use that by default to send emails instead of sending paper letters to our home addresses.
