Summary This is the first full-length study that recognises and discusses digital identity in a transactional context under a national identity scheme. It contrasts the right to identity to the right to privacy in the context of a national identity scheme, and defines identity theft and its consequences. The analysis and findings are relevant to the one proposed for the United Kingdom, to other countries which have similar schemes, and to countries like Australia who have the long term goal of establishing one. Under a national identity scheme, being asked to provide 'ID' will become as commonplace as being asked one's name, and the concept of identity will become embedded in processes essential to the national economic and social order. The analysis reveals the emergence of a new legal concept of identity. This emergent concept and the associated individual rights, including the right to identity, potentially change the legal and commercial landscape.
