Blockchain Technology is promising solution for digital identities, enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain management and more. Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) makes Self Sovereign Identities (SSIs) possible, where individuals can keep control of their digital identity and share it whenever they want with whoever they want. Furthermore, it can help large companies in having better transparency and security. Blockchain as a Service is already gaining some traction. Several SSI concepts as well as number of commercial products are being offered on the market already. It remains to be seen how scalability, governance questions and future privacy regulations affect wider adoption of DLT.


Blockchain ID: Current Status & Future Developments

This "conversation" is at the core of how we will create value for one another. It will allow...

You Can’t Do PII on a Blockchain, so What Then Is It Good for in Identity?
Many viewpoints of the applicability of blockchain for consumer identity have been expressed. In particular, some express doubt about the viability of being able to reconcile GDPR’s right-to-be-forgotten with the immutable nature of blockchain. This is in fact true. However, there are still ways that blockchain can increase transaction integrity while also providing privacy-by-design leadership. Come join this session to learn about how blockchain is being used in the Canadian model...

Gamification: The Secret Ingredient of Successful CIAM Initiatives
As most EIC2019 participants will agree: consumer identity and access management (CIAM) is a key success factor in digital transformations. Still, so many CIAM initiatives never see the light of day. And when they do, success is all but guaranteed.  During this session, we will share key insights into how we use ‘The Identity Game’ to accelerate CIAM project initiation and execution leveraging the power of gamification for a.o. stakeholder engagement, business casing and...

Self-Sovereign Identity - We've Had It for Thousands of Years. so What's New?

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Time: 11:00-12:00 Location: CHIEMSEE

Self-Sovereign Identity - We've Had It for Thousands of Years. so What's New?
Self-sovereign identity isn't new. It's just a new term. People having been carrying credentials around to prove who they are for thousands of years. When we entered the digital age, something weird happened. Our digital credentials became locked up inside databases owned by corporations and governments. We couldn't get at them, and instead had to get by with vastly inferior usernames and passwords.  Compared with physical passports, driving licenses or even business cards, today's...

An Identity Metasystem
In 2005, Kim Cameron proposed something called an identity metasystem that would serve as the infrastructure for the many context-specific identity systems we have. Such an identity metasystem would not only allow these various identity systems to interoperate but would, importantly, unify the user experience to ensure people were an integral part of the identity exchange and understood what was happening. Now, in 2019 we are on the verge of finally realizing this dream. This talk will talk...

Panel: Current Developments in Blockchain Ecosystem for Digital ID
The convergence of digital identity and blockchain technology has caught the imagination of governments, enterprises and developers around the world. Lots of approaches are being tried. But it only works if it all works together. The world needs a digital standard that is as ubiquitous as paper is in the physical world. We need the SMTP of identity that everyone can use, that is open and non-proprietary. This panel will be enlighten the audience about the development efforts that are under...

Why Governments are Still Important Even in a Self-Sovereign Context

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Time: 12:00-13:00 Location: CHIEMSEE

Why Governments are Still Important Even in a Self-Sovereign Context
It’s always been true that identity is more to do with what other people say about you than what you say about yourself. Placing the user in control of their online identity means that we need the ability to reference authoritative sources of data related to those individuals. If we are to build that user centric and much needed version of Digital Identity then Self-sovereign identity, and its more modest Self-managed form, will need the support of Governments and...

Do People Really Want to Be in Charge of Their Identity?
Shared Ledger Technology is increasingly mature, but remains a relatively under-deployed technology in the digital identity space. The emergence of self-sovereign identity approaches, underpinned and powered by shared ledgers, offer new and exciting solutions to establishing digital identities. As both technologies gain greater mainstream focus, will the combination of the two approaches unlock genuinely consumer-focused identity solution? Moving away from large centrally managed...

Creating Rich, Valuable Credentials for People

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Time: 15:30-16:30 Location: CHIEMSEE

Creating Rich, Valuable Credentials for People

Third Party Risk Management with Decentralized Identity & Verifiable Credentials
In regulated industries the dependency on suppliers for raw materials and services is very high, especially since there is little flexibility to switch away from qualified suppliers on short notice. Thus the concept of “Knowing your Supplier” is key for a reliable supply setup. This takes on even greater importance with the growing awareness of ethical, environmental and labor policies of individual supply chain partners. This presentation examines how Decentralized Identity and...

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Time: 17:00-18:00 Location: CHIEMSEE

Managing Self-Sovereign Identities (a Relying Party Perspective)
As the groundswell around the Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) movement grows, it's important to consider what impacts it may have on existing businesses that want to adopt and support this new model of dealing with Identity. This talk will walk through the identity life-cycle at a relying party and discuss impacts and changes necessary to support SSI identities. Key takeaways: How the SSI model differs from current practice for Relying Parties Decisions Relying Parties should...

DID Resolution & DID Authentication
Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) are a key building block of the emerging Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) ecosystem. They are a new kind of identifier: Persistent, cryptographically verifiable, resolvable, and of course decentralized, i.e. independent of any central authority or intermediary. In this talk we will explore how DIDs function internally, how they can get registered and resolved, and how they can be used for authentication purposes (DID Auth). The talk will also give an update on...

Making Standards Work in the Real World – Examples from Canada and Scotland
Standards are needed establish interoperable, ubiquitous and inclusive digital identity ecosystems. However, standards suggest that everyone's requirements are the same when they are not. Regulations, customer demographics and existing systems all determine what make work for an organisation. Different sectors, organisations and even services within an organisation can all be different. And yet there is a pressing need for standardisation in order to be able to realise the benefits of...

Canada's True North Strategy for Establishing Interoperability of Third Party Networks For Identity
Identity is best solved by a village that connects the best capabilities of the public and private sectors to grow economic opportunities. Governments hold the "book of names" for people and organizations that sets a legal foundation for identity verification. People and organizations perform most of their transactions outside of government contexts. These transactions form the basis of functional or "street" identity. The private sector needs to rely on the public sector for legal identity...
