What are Identities?

In digital systems, identities refer to the unique representation of individuals, organisations, devices, or software within a network or system. Digital identities can include a wide range of information, such as usernames, digital certificates, and cryptographic keys, used to authenticate and authorise entities in digital transactions and interactions.

In supply chain traceability, managing digital identities is crucial for verifying the authenticity of participants and ensuring secure communications and transactions across the supply chain. Effective identity management supports accountability, transparency, and the protection of sensitive information.
