The goal of this paper is fivefold. First, we will try to define identity, digital identity and identity management. Second, we will summarize the current status of digital identity management. Third, we will detail the specific problems and limitations of the current identity infrastructure. Fourth, we will propose a theoretical system that is designed to address the aforementioned problems. Fifth, we will present an actual framework, currently in development, which will be our final recommendation. In addition, the subject of anonymity, with respect to our recommendation, will be dealt with, but it will not be the main objective of the paper.
