How Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) enables decentralized Identity and Access management for Things
From SSI zero to hero – ETO`s digital & IoT transformation in practice
We entrust workloads and devices with our most sensitive data, giving them access to far more information than the human on whose behalf it operates, if it is even operating on behalf of a human. Yet, managing these non-human identities and applying Zero Trust Policies to them is a Herculean task complicated by a heterogenous technology landscape, amplified by multi-cloud/multi-hybrid environments, exacerbated by critical skills shortages and magnified by exponential growth in workload and device identities.
In this session, I will first talk about the design considerations and challenges when applying SSI to IoT, followed by the description of an initiative for creating an embedded SDK for SSI. Finally, I will discuss new opportunities for building decentralized identity and access management solutions for IoT.
