OpenEdition Press: publication of “What is digital identity?”

1eredecouvdigOlivier Ertzscheid’s book Qu’est-ce que l’identité numérique ? is now available in English, offering all the tools and methodologies to take control of your digital identity.


Translated from French, What is digital identity? Issues, tools, methodologies is an accessible guide to cutting-edge research on digital identity. It provides an overview of the fundamental issues that individuals need to master in order to retain control over their or their organization’s online presence, one of the main problems in today’s Internet ecosystem.

This is a book for readers who wish to discover more about this rich and complex issue, as well as for businesses, organizations and public authorities seeking a methodology and good practices in this domain.

It should also interest all those who have asked themselves at least once whether the publication of a piece of information, a video or a Facebook status update risked causing harm to themselves one day, their friends and family, or their employer. And more importantly, this is a book for people who have never asked themselves that question.
