Abstract [en]

The popularity of virtual worlds and their increasing economic impacthas created a situation where the value of trusted identification has risensubstantially. We propose an identity management solution that provides theuser with secure credentials and allows to decrease the required trust that theuser must have towards the server running the virtual world. Additionally, theidentity management system allows the virtual world to incorporate reputationinformation. This allows the “wisdom of the crowd” to provide more input tousers about the reliability of a certain identity. We describe how to use theseidentities to provide secure services in the virtual world. These include securecommunications, digital signatures and secure bindings to external services.
