Ok, but a term for which we have no useful
definition does not provide much that is useful.
This dips into the philosophy of self and that is irrelevant.
Identification or assertion of identity is an
act and auditing the act is doable. One act
asserts identity and another asserts the
correctness of the assertion (authentication).
In a wide open system, ensuring
the actor owns the asserted property is very
difficult. That is why the most highly secured
systems are in vaults and have no external
connections. Protection is commensurate with
risk. As individuals risk more, they want and
need more protection. Hailstorm is MS trying
to both enable more services across more platforms
while enabling more protection. The question
is does it work? Then who works it?
But the original question is if the means is
system wide, can they assert ownership of means.

Main argument: identification asserts identity, contrary to the claim that
identity does not exist. Therefore, he who controls assertion of identity
(or validation of identity claims), has leverage on identity itself.
