At Okta’s core is the belief that…

Please join us today in celebrating International Identity Day.

Identity is a fundamental and universal human right. Unfortunately, one in seven people globally — more than one billion individuals — are unable to prove who they are by any widely recognized means.

This most fundamental function — the ability to prove who we are — is something that many of us take for granted. Yet it is an incredibly important one, allowing us to enjoy rights and protections under the law, access a variety of services, participate as citizens and voters, transact in an increasingly digital economy, and much more.

Members of the ID2020 Alliance are united in the belief that identity is a fundamental and universal human right and that we all deserve better ways to prove who we are — both in the physical world and online.

As a community of technologists, advocates, implementers, and funders, we also believe that ethically implemented, privacy-protecting, user-managed, and portable digital ID solutions offer a better alternative to the current “data as a commodity” paradigm.

A new report from KPMG entitled, The New Imperative for Corporate Data Responsibility, suggests that the American public increasingly agrees with this perspective. Based on a survey…


ID2020 is proud to announce the certification of BLOK Pass from BLOK Bioscience, a digital ID-based solution for COVID health status certificates. BLOK Pass is the first COVID-focused solution to be certified by ID2020.

BLOK Pass offers individuals a self-sovereign record of their testing, antibody and, ultimately, vaccination status. Initially envisioned as a means to help businesses and governments manage the safe and incremental return to public life in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the solution is expected to be applied more broadly in the future to support immunization certificates and the transmission of other medical test results.
