The Night King's identity is a mystery, yet to be solved, even though unveiling it won't matter that much when the curtain falls.

What the Night King stands for

Aside from being a highly-skilled character, the Night King seems to be the ultimate punishment for Westeros. It could serve as a purge for most of this world.

Season 7 provided the key to defeating the Night King. Dragonglass is the element which gave birth to the creature and which can also destroy him. Jon Snow is aware of the situation and his brand new alliance with Daenerys Targaryen includes a mining deal too.

The Season 7 finale pictured the Army of the Dead going right through the wall while the Night King supervised the whole effort from above. He watches all from the comfort of his brand new icy dragon's back.

Knowing how to eliminate the Night King simplifies the whole thing; all the people of Westeros need is the opportunity to present itself. But for now, the Night King's arrival puts fear in everyone's bones.

Jon Snow's identity creates a bigger dilemma

Jon Snow brought his relationship with Daenerys Targaryen into a whole new territory.

Blending political interest with emotional impulses sets an insecure foundation. Basically, Daenerys is no longer the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Jon Snow, being a Targaryen, also writes a new chapter of the incestual habits previously presented through Cersei and her twin brother, Jaime Lannister.

If the fragile pact between Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow comes to an end, the Night King can easily be put in charge of Westeros. His identity will be just another minor fact.

The Realm needs all its political actors directly involved and following the same course of action. It'll be their only chance to resist the threat coming down from the North. This will all play out when "Game of Thrones: Season 8" debuts on HBO.
