--------------------
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.
