Top 10 identity attributes

There was a really interesting discussion going on at the LinkedIn Identity Management Specialists group a while back about the top 10 identity attributes.

My contribution:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Gender
  • Former Last Name (at Birth)
  • Location of Birth
  • Passport number
  • Drivers licence (or state/province) ID number
  • Professional or trade registration number
  • Bank account number

If you have a LinkedIn account this group is worth following. And for Canadian readers, check out Canadiam – IAM in Canada.
