Identity security is
|“||[t]he security of who a person is, or the evidence a person uses to prove who they are.||”|
"Identity Security is a balancing act between three drivers:
- confidentiality and privacy — protecting an individual's evidence of identity from being compromised (stolen, duplicated, misused etc);
- integrity — maintaining the integrity or correctness of an individual's identity information; and
- availability — maintaining access to the identity information to those who should have access."
