Digit or ID

Your identity is becoming a commodity. 

Regardless of if you are concerned with the importance of cryptography and surveillance issues, the digital world frequently asks us to proove our identities to grant us access to our data. One of the most frequently used ‘identities’ is ‘123456’, which highlights a problem: humans are the weakest link in security systems. I believe the way to address this problem is putting the human in the centre of the system. By combining mnemonic techniques with existing security systems I am looking for alternative models of digital identities and ways we want to interact with our data. I would like security systems to be more engaging, appealing and stimulating to use.
