- There are three types of Identifier that are not considered "Fake" for the purposes of this definition:
- Subject IDs that represent legal entities and do not represent themselves as some Entity that they are not.
- Pseudonyms which are alternate Identifiers representing alternate personas of a real human being (or perhaps other legal entity).
- Independent User Agents Identifiers that are sanctioned to operate on behalf of a real human being (or perhaps other legal entity).
A Fake Identifier is also one category of Artificial Identifier.
