Identity Thoughts...

The fundamenmtal one being...
Why can't an Operating System's security be designed from the User in!

The answer that I have come to: Because devices cannot yet reliably recognise / identify people.

Combination of Identifiers
Facial Recognition
Voice Recognition
Typing Recognition
Finger Print etc....

Two thoughts:
Our Identity is a state that should be continuously monitored, not just initially checked.
Our Identity will be known to devices and we must have the power over them to decide the Persona we are choosing to represent to the outside world.
