With your support, the Internet Protocol Identity Community Group has been launched:

To join:

This group was originally proposed on 2015-02-14
by Doug Schepers. The following people supported its
      Doug Schepers
      Ian Jacobs
      Amandeep Sidhu
      Aswini S
      Ronald Reck
This group is for the discussion of assigning an IPv6 address for every
person on Earth, so everyone has a digital identity.

Each individual could use this to proxy or alias other identifiers,
permanent or temporary, over different spans of their lifetime. Thus, a
person they can manage their domain names, physical or email addresses,
phone numbers, WebRTC address, and other contact info as they wish,
flexibly maintaining an identity in a decentralized way not controlled
by third-party commercial interests or even governments.

This system could also be used for organizations, businesses, animals,
or any other entity that needs an identity.

This group may produce specifications.

Thank you,

W3C Community Development Team
