    Practical identity management solutions.

    Feasibility


    The project team offered excellent ideas for resolving and integrating ID and DID for individual users, businesses, financial institutions, and governments. Cardano blockchain technology improves the security of identity management in Nigeria and across Africa. However, this is a large undertaking because it includes numerous components such as verifying identities, regulating users, and generating safe transactions. This makes project feasibility more time-consuming and difficult to implement.

     

    Viability

     

    The proposal includes detailed timelines, budgets, and deliverables for project implementation. This is something the project team accomplishes exceptionally well. However, the project team has not specified a time frame for implementing each milestone. Furthermore, as stated in the feasibility section, this project requires a significant amount of effort, but it has not been demonstrated that the team members have the necessary skills to finish it. This is an identity management project, but the project team members haven't disclosed the members' identities. This is an omission that the project team must address.

     

    Desirability

    .

    This concept is extremely practical and is essential for countries, businesses, organisations, and individuals. The benefits of the proposed method are enormous, with great potential for the future. SSI, which integrates ID and DID, is a new market demand and trend. Identity management is a major challenge, particularly in Africa.

    Usefulness

    This project will help develop the AI making it a valuable project for the platform.

    AI for Identity Management

    Summary

    This is supposed to be an ideation project, so rating the project overview is somewhat herculean in that it speaks of the project in terms of execution. I wanted to see what considerations were pushing and necessary for the proposers in this ideation phase.

    As a new project, this project would undoubtedly have some reasonable usefulness and viability. The desirability and feasibility are what the proposers may have proven for themselves during ideation.
