Shared identity solutions have been around for a few years but have only stirred moderate interest from publishers who had far greater fires to put out. But thanks to the anti-tracking changes at the browsers, and the regulatory scrutiny on real-time bidding , shared ID solutions are now enjoying a much-welcomed return to the spotlight.
But while there are some genuinely good ID vendors and consortiums out there, there is a load of rubbish being touted too.
