Decentralized ID Adds New Firepower To Fight Against Digital-First Fraud

More robust protocols give consumers better control over their identities. Law told PYMNTS that all too often, individuals lose control of their online identities as they’ve become victimized in phishing attacks or account takeovers, a problem that has hit financial services providers especially hard.

“With the advent of FIDO and WebAuthn, you make the authentication simple,” said Law. “Instead of using an [one-time password (OTP)] text message, you use a fingerprint or your face.”

Moving away from the password and toward the single sign-on — with its federated approach across different web properties — still needs identity attestation (part of the Microsoft announcement), which in turn will require firms to consider their know your customer (KYC) processes.

Blockchain technology, it should be noted, provides a potentially critical solution to this problem. Though IPs could still be hijacked at the lowest level, a blockchain-powered routing layer would allow enterprises to connect their devices and infrastructures via a private network without publishing their IP addresses — the ones bad actors could use to target their particular services. And within this layer, every connection between devices can be encrypted without using the centralized authorities that have been a key vulnerability in current architectures.
