DignifID™ is established for the purpose of bringing legitimate digital identity, and associated services, to animals and their guardians. Availability of verifiable, legitimate identity credentials is crucial for people to secure their rights and benefits in human society. Without ID, any person has little to no status or security in modern human societies. DignifID has prepared a position paper that explains the importance and opportunity of providing legitimate digital identity for animals that have human or organizational guardians. You can read a summary of this paper at the following link:
The DignifID Animals Foundation has also developed the “DignifID Digital Identity Explainer Series” to introduce concepts of digital identity for humans and animals. The goal of these lessons is to help people build a good understanding of how important and useful digital identity is, how it applies to animals, and basic details of the technology.
