Digital ID systems are evolving rapidly. To determine whether a digital ID is suitable, governments, financial institutions and other stakeholders should:

  1. Understand the assurance levels of the digital ID system’s technology, architecture and governance
  2. Given its assurance levels, determine whether it is appropriately reliable, independent in light of potential risks that it is used to facilitate illicit finance.

For this reason Financial Action Task Force has developed a guide for digital identity.
