Mastercard, Microsoft to Advance Digital Identity Innovations
Mastercard, Microsoft Join Forces to Advance Digital Identity Innovations
PURCHASE, N.Y. and REDMOND, Wash. December 3, 2018 Mastercard (NYSE: MA) and Microsoft (Nasdaq MSFT @microsoft) today announced a strategic collaboration to improve how people manage and use their digital identity.
Currently, verifying your identity online is still dependent on physical or digital proof managed by a central party, whether its your passport number, your proof of address, drivers license, user credentials or other means.
This dependence places a huge burden on individuals, who have to successfully remember hundreds of passwords for various identities and are increasingly being subjected to more complexity in proving their identity and managing their data. Working together, Mastercard and Microsoft aim to give people a secure, instant way to verify their digital identity with whomever they want, whenever they want.
The answer to these challenges is a service that would allow individuals to enter, control and share their identity data their wayon the devices they use every day.
Thats Mastercards intention, working closely with players like Microsoft.
Todays digital identity landscape is patchy, inconsistent and what works in one country often wont work in another.
We have an opportunity to establish a system that puts people first, giving them control of their identity data and where it is used, says Ajay Bhalla, president, cyber and intelligence solutions, Mastercard.
Working with Microsoft brings us one step closer to making a globally interoperable digital identity service a reality, and we look forward to sharing more very soon.
Access to a universally-recognized digital identity could unlock new and enhanced experiences for people as they interact with businesses, service providers and their community online, including:
Financial Services: Improve and speed the applicant identification process for establishing a new bank account, loan or payment service accountCommerce:
Enable a more personalized and efficient shopping experience online and in stores, regardless of the payment type, device or service provider.
Government Services: Simplify interactions with government agencies and services such as filing taxes, applying for passports or securing support payments (e.g., Social Security)
Digital Services: Streamline and provide easier use of email, social media, movie/music streaming services, and rideshare platforms
Digital identity is a cornerstone of how people live, work and play every day, said Joy Chik, corporate vice president, Identity, Microsoft.
We believe people should be in control of their digital identity and data, and were thrilled to first work with Mastercard to bring new decentralized identity innovations to life.
This digital identity initiative could also help solve for common challenges:
Identity Inclusion: More than 1 billion people, a majority of them women, children and refugees, are not officially recognized; a digital identity can improve their access to health, financial and social services.
Identity Verification: A single, reusable digital identity can help people interact with a merchant, bank, government agency and countless other digital service providers with greater integrity, lower cost and with less friction.
Fraud Prevention: A single digital identity can help reduce payments fraud and identity theft of various forms.
This initiative will serve as the foundation for new Mastercard services powered by Microsoft Azure and built in collaboration with leaders in the banking, mobile network operator and government communities.
Microsoft and Mastercard are bringing together their respective strengths Microsofts expertise in identity technology and Mastercards expertise in securely orchestrating digital interactions in a complex multi-stakeholder ecosystem.
Stay tuned over the next few months for further development announcements.

I feel better already.

people please, try to read your Bible with understanding, in NO WAY is a computer chip the Mark. The Mark is thinking that Satan is Jesus (your forehead) or doing the work for Satan’s (thinking he’s Jesus) Church (the hands).
Please read with understanding.
U.S. agencies working on standard for seamless communication between biometric databases

The U.S. Defense Department, the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security are planning to establish a new standard in 2019 to allow their biometric databases to communicate seamlessly, DoD officials told an audience at the AFCEA (Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association) Federal Identity Forum in Tampa, Florida, SIGNAL reports.
The Electronic Biometric Transmission Specification (EBTS) version 4.1 will enable the DoDs ABIS, DHSs IDENT, and the FBIs NGI (next generation identification) system to communicate natively, in their own language, according to DoD biometrics program chief engineer Will Graves. DHS is preparing to upgrade from its IDENT system to the new Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology (HART) in order to handle scale and capabilities far beyond those it was originally designed for.
I’m sure there won’t be any unintended consequences. I’m sure the globalists just hate this idea. Perhaps we could do away with all currency printed and coinage and just use decimal points. Perhaps each unique identification number should start with 666... yeah great idea ...maybe Jonathan Swift was rolling over in his grave.
Civil / National ID
Civil ID is used to identify or verify the identity of individuals when interacting with governments. Examples of this could be for the purposes of document issuance, border management, voter registration or employment background checks. Find Civil ID solutions here.

Revelation 13:16-17 King James Version (KJV)
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Some of us prefer anonymity. Identity inclusion is rife with negative results, improving access by bad players into your finances, goods and privacy. One of those bad players is known as government. Do you really want government to have total control over your health, whereabouts, possessions and who you meet with?
Man was fashioned on the sixth day of Creation,
6 6 6 means replacing the Holy Trinity of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit with the most unholy triad of man, man, and man...or, simply put, “me, myself, and I”.
This could be done through Real ID if it matured to using X.509 certificates (a smart card). But, that would require the states to build up some public facing infrastructure they may not be capable of implementing.
Yes because the tech companies are so good at protecting our ‘data’. Now the perps will only need one thing and they’ll have everything.
If you’re a computer hacker and really good at it, I predict you’ll have no trouble finding work for the foreseeable future. :)
Year ago I worked with a team of people examining a future personal identity scheme. Instead of multiple cards, accounts and passwords each person would have a digital identity that would be used in all financial transactions. That’s where this is going.
