Identity theft occurs when a person uses the means of identification of another individual to commit criminal activity. Americans of all demographics are potential victims of this crime. After looking at the details of this problem, it is apparent that the growth of identity theft can be attributed to various factors. Hence, a singular source is not to blame for the increasing problem. In particular, identity theft is not only a cryptographic problem, but an educational problem as well.
