Managing digital identities and being in control of your own data, share it only when necessary and as much as necessary seems to be impossible through traditional centralized identity management models. Blockchain technology is promising to solve this challenge by providing decentralized approach which offers more control and security to the challenge of digital identities. Blockchain makes Self Sovereign Identities (SSIs) possible, and 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 Blockchain technology.

The digital world will be transformed through a new wave of innovation being termed "Trust over IP" which is based on the technology created to support SSI.

Bringing Self-Sovereign Identity Into Practice: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Sebastian Bickerle, Main Incubator GmbH • Marcus Heizmann, Commerz Business Consulting GmbH

In the future, you will not only decide where your data is stored, but also with whom you want to share your data. If you share data, everything will be logged for you and you will always have an overview of who has received data from you. This is what transparency looks like and this is what SSI promises you. But, what are the challenges when trying to implement SSI paradigms in the real world, and where do we may have to change the overall reception on digital...
