Abstract

Privacy, identity and trust are strongly affected by the unfolding Information Society. Old institutions and assumptions about the scope of privacy, ownership and control of identity and appropriate linkage among them are shifting, often without conscious choice. In particular, the need for strong online identity, digitisation of identity information and association of identifying data with physical bodies raise practical and conceptual challenges, which this paper considers in relation to the specificities of biometric technologies and their potential for enhancing or undermining useful and socially productive privacy.
