Re: [Cryptography] what's an identity, was Crypto basic income

In article <DM2PR0401MB09118E6E2A9EE4FD455898E3B57A0 AT DM2PR0401MB0911.namprd04.prod.outlook.com> you write:
>I get it that biometrics cannot be secrets; but it would seem that DNA might be (theoretically) the gold standard for establishment of identity.
