In Summer 2021, the ADI Association announced public availability of the Specification for Accountable Digital Identity (ADI). Central to the Specification are the concepts of privacy-preserving accountability and interoperability. Privacy-preserving accountability allows companies to spot fraud by combining verified identity and individual consent to validate information without compromising user privacy. Interoperability enables companies to participate in the ADI ecosystem and adopt decentralized identity without disrupting their existing identity infrastructure. The ADI Specification embraces industry standards from multiple standards bodies, including Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF), FIDO Alliance, and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
