|This function offers to store digital identities together with information that can serve as credentials.|
This Generic Function belongs to Working Area Middleware.
This function offers to store digital identities (each a set of identity attributes) together with information that can serve as credentials. Effectively, this Generic Function is thus a specialized version of a Structured Data Store.
Identity Store is modeled separately from Identity Validation that is linked with it, mainly to account for security aspects (both in the sense that an Identity Store itself must be extra secured, and that positioning an Identity Store in an infrastructure overview serves as a focal point for security considerations).
