Physical: “Having material existence.”

Physical Identity refers to a physical document or device that contains Identity Attributes for an individual. Examples include:

  • Drivers license
  • Passport
  • Credit card
  • Birth certificate
  • Diploma
  • University Transcript

These items are regularly used to validate the Identity of an individual. Each of these examples is issued by an authoritative third party. Other items, such as a resume, may be self-issued, but not deemed authoritative. Validation of claims made on a resume may be subject to third-party confirmation.
