Solving deduplication for voting or tax fraud requires biometrics.

Right now, the biometrics are proprietary (the databases are not open, they
are in the hands of government or private corporations) and non-standard
(the templates and the encoding of attributes and service endpoints are
proprietary as well.

Standardized digital credentials make the problem worse.
