What are Digital Credentials?
Digital credentials are the digital equivalent of a signature on a piece of paper. They can also act as a digital version of identity documents issued by trusted parties such as government organisations.
They are used to establish a persons privileges, characteristics and identity in the electronic world.
Physical identity credentials are coming under increasing pressure from counterfeiting and other fraudulent use. They also cannot be used easily by electronic devices such as mobile phones and personal computers. Digital credentials resolve some of these issues.
PKIaaS and Encryption
The vulnerability of the data can be significantly reduced by encrypting the data or encrypting the transmission path taken by the data along the network. Encrypting the data is referred to as data-level encryption and encrypting the path is referred to as session encryption.
If a user needs end-to-end protection of data, measures must be taken to keep it secure in all the three states: at rest, in use, and in motion.
