The network operators offer the digital asset management services for the users, with which some information (e.g. IDs) can be certified by the operator. The digital asset management services can also include
The management of the digital asset container is performed according to the applicable regulations.
The digital asset container has security properties (cannot be spoofed, access control with a policy determined by the user, etc.).
In the case of immersive XR media services, the user can choose, in the digital asset container, his/her digital representation and the related information, for example, the digital representation of the user (e.g. avatar), electronic money and associated financial services, identity, purchased items (the format of this information is at application layer and is not studied in 3GPP). This information can be used when accessing immersive XR media services or for real life services as the presentation of the identity.
Alice has a service subscription with the operator. As part of the service, the network operator provides
The digital asset container management according to the future applicable regulations;
Security protection options of the digital asset container (e.g. cannot be spoofed, access control with a policy determined by the user, etc.).
Alice is authorized to access and use the dump.
This feature is currently not documented in the 3GPP specifications.
Concerning the user identity related aspects, the features described in the document TR 22.904
can be applied.
