Answers this Authenticity question:

Question: When someone identifies themself to you, how do you know how reliable is that claim of identity?

Answer:The foundational identity certificate is accompanied by other certificates and by an identity quality record. Very little might be revealed to a relying party about the person identified other than their identity quality information and the fact that the identity certificate has not been revoked. Despite that anonymity, the Identity Reliability Component establishes accountability.
