.....Goods, persons, houses, situations,1 and indus- trial processes radiate data trails and create dig- ital twins. These twins exist as sets of properties in an analytic layer that is in many hands at the moment, but not really under multi-stakeholder control. Whoever or whatever gains agency in and on that layer (which defines governance of the everyday) must grasp the practice and theory of assigning, withdrawing, validating, and defin- ing the entitlements and their very nature: who/ what exists when/where/how and why? The term “entitlements” is vague but it points to the fact that “identity” as a term to designate actions, attributes and location of a person has become problematic. Andrea Servida, “father” of eIDAS (Electronic Identification and Trust Services), for example uses it in the following way (Servida, 2019): “where eIDAS matters; data-minimisation; use of trusted attributes, credentials and entitlements (such
as age verification, proof of residence, etc.)”
The situation is hybrid in the sense that digital twins actually begin to influence back in ana- logue objects. This is the moment of ontological change, decisive for leadership in the 21st century. It demands a new toolset for the notion of iden- tity itself.
