First intelligent statement I've seen, regarding Identity, from a Government Source
(that is, if the Law Commission qualifies as a Government source - not sure of their constitutional position)
the full quote from the Law Commission reveals that someone actually knows what they're talking about:
"We have concerns, however, as to whether the use of Verify would be sufficient to protect testators from undue influence and impersonation. Verify does not currently ensure that the person entering the information is in fact the person he or she is purporting to be; rather it focuses on verifying that the person exists. While the involvement of witnesses generally provides some protection against fraud and undue influence, Verify does not currently have any facility for the participation of witnesses. Furthermore, Verify relies on passwords to control access to the service. There is a risk, therefore, that testators will give their passwords to family members or carers, and might be pressured to do so by persons wanting to abuse them."
If only these people could also advise the authoritarians on end to end encryption...
