    As the Federal Government unveiled a long-awaited Digital Government Strategy focusing in part on the need for effective security and privacy measures in communicating with the government, a new paper released by the Office of Inspector General (OIG), Digital Identity: Opportunities for the Postal Service, examines potential roles for the U.S. Postal Service in the increasingly important area of digital identity authentication. These include serving as a trusted third party on-line, as an identity provider, verifying attributes physically for digital identities and even providing an escrow service for peer to peer transactions. Seems like a natural fit for a trusted insitution like USPS. Here’s a link to the paper:

    We would love to have your feedback.

    Thanks, Bruce
