Today’s Internet operates using a 1:1 Account Management ratio, when it should use a Database Approach with a 1:Many with a centralized profile identity and account management system.

Abstract

The internet is an online information system that offers use and security of personal data but requires a significant amount of maintenance once information is shared.  The more a person uses it for bill paying, sharing private information, buying, using credit, spending money, and all the many other things that require authentication, account management, and online enjoyment, the greater the information maintenance burden.  This has evolved into a data and document management problem, leaving its users with only partially beneficial and protective systems, with information everywhere and an individual responsibility to manage with minimal technical solutions or direction.  The design of the Internet does not follow an efficient database structure that allows source profile maintenance by its users and automatic updates where all the information is contained, used, stored, and held.  There are several solutions to this problem, of temporary nature that use a quick program to change data, but a process and possibly a change in data management is required, as well as design standards and security practices.  Users are left to manage their account information for each profile, one at a time, when we have technology available that streamlines this task. 

Podcast – Identity and Account Management – The Problem

Changing the design of the internet or creating an all-encompassing integrated application is not simple.  This project will present a new profile management concept which will be applicable to other data management systems and once proven to be more secure and efficient, can be accepted as a legal requirement and standard for information sharing.  Whether it’s a single user application with a data management policy that solves the problem or it’s a complete change to software design standards and information management, this project seeks to present a more optimal sharing information system.

This all encompassing advanced identity management system is summarized with the combination of two words: BioMetrics. It does not only include identity markers that match your physical self, but also metrics on what you do, where you do it, and who you do it with. More research is required on using Algorithms to advance understanding of not just site rankings, but how the mathematical approach, using statistics can be used with personal profile and account management.

The internet systems we have available today suffer from amnesia, perhaps dementia, severe distrust, and other mild disorders. Our tracking systems are self created, vast, and varied – leaving much room for error without much industrial leadership.
