A digital ID is the electronic equivalent of an individual's identity card. A digital ID can be presented electronically to prove an individual's identity and their right to access information or services online. Digital IDs, also
known as digital certificates, are electronic documents that use a digital signature to bind together a public key with an identity — this information can be a person's name or the name of an organization, etc. The certificate
is used to confirm that a public key belongs to a specific individual.
