To take control of today's identity spam, several vendors have taken the challenge to consider identity federation as a valid solution as far as single-sign-on (SSO) or identity as a service (IDaaS) are concerned.

SSI has the inherent ability to uniquely release certain information for specific purposes and withdraw access on its own and when needed. One of the biggest challenges for using SSI is its implementation in existing application infrastructures. Dr. André Kudra demonstrates a prototype for integrating SSI into existing application infrastructures at this lecture.

Key Takeawas:

  • How to integrate SSI into existing application infrastructures?
  • Why is a blockchain or distributed ledger technology needed?
