IdentityTypeSTIX Common Schema

The IdentityType is used to express identity information for both individuals and organizations.

This type is extended through the xsi:type mechanism. The default type is CIQIdentity3.0InstanceType in the http://stix.mitre.org/extensions/Identity#CIQIdentity3.0-1 namespace. This type is defined in the extensions/identity/ciq_3.0_identity.xsd file or at the URL http://stix.mitre.org/XMLSchema/extensions/identity/ciq_3.0/1.1.1/ciq_3.0_identity.xsd.

Those who wish to express a simple name may also do so by not specifying an xsi:type and using the Name field of this type.
