D2.13: Virtual Persons and Identities

Virtual Persons  D2.13 Virtual Persons



A pseudonym, in the light of virtual persons, becomes the identity of a virtual person. If the virtual person can be linked to one physical person (blue link), the pseudonym becomes a virtual identity for this physical person. However, when a specific observer cannot link the virtual persons and the physical one (red link), the observer’s view is restricted to the virtual world. In this case, pseudonyms play their role of privacy enhancing technologies by providing anonymity for the physical person, as well as unlinkability between some of the virtual persons, with respect to this observer.
