As we continue to embrace cyberspace and the opportunities it affords us our identities and online personas are increasing in value - to us, to the service providers we engage, to criminals and to those who would exploit cyberspace to conduct attacks. The ability to understand identity and how it transcends cyber and physical spaces is important in understanding the exposure to risk people may face, as well as in detecting the perpetrators of crime. The SuperIdentity project is developing a model to understand how we might connect identity through cyber and physical spaces, the degrees of certainty we might put in such a model and the social issues surrounding it."
