U.S. Permanent Resident Cards with SSI
- TYPE: Session DATE: Thursday, August 06, 2020 TIME: 17:20-17:40
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has supported Self-Sovereign Identity technologies such as Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials for several years. Now, a number of companies have been selected to work with DHS on implementing digital versions of identity documents such as the Permanent Resident Card (Green Card). In this use case, the issuer of Verifiable Credentials is USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services), and the verifier is TSA (Transportation Security Administration).
The overall objective is to make use of SSI technologies in order to increase security and efficiency as well as user control and transparency. Another key parameter of the project is that all technical components must be interoperable and based on standardized interfaces.
