Many of the recent cyber-centric innovations, which some people call ‘techceleration’, would end up with pipedream without solid identity assurance

Citizens in an inclusive society must be able to demand that their volition be confirmed when their digital identity needs to be authenticated for their civic rights and duties. ‘Identity Assurance by Our Own Volition and Memory’, our principle, could well be a fundamental requirement of democracy.

‘Hard-to-forget’ secret credentials are made feasible by the intrinsic nature of the emotion-colored ‘episodic memory’; When we register, as our secret credential, the pictures of our episodic memory that have survived in our brain for decades, it is not easy for us to get them forgotten over the next few years or so.

We can and will thus achieve ‘solid identity assurance’
