Intersectional Social Identity

Whereas most existing identity concepts are either centralized or individualistic, Intersectional Social Identity (XID) solutions embody human identities’ social, and multi-dimensional characteristics. XID makes use of three central primitives:

  1. Each participant has a digital journal listing all their identifying information. (Only that individual has access to the complete set of data in that store.)
  2. For each input X in their digital journal, each participant also stores the set of other participants who also keep copies of X.
  3. Each participant stores a degree of credit. They are willing to offer other participants credit as “social collateral” to give their identity statements credibility.
