Parent Track


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.

Panel: How Self-Sovereign Identity Has Graduated From the Blockchain World
Dr. André Kudra, esatus AG • Vic Cooper, HearRo, Inc. • Riley Hughes, Trinsic • Heather Dahl, Sovrin Foundation • Dr. Julien Bringer, KALLISTECH

The landscape of IAM/IDV is changing rapidly. It is no surprise that the way we do identity online using centralized systems is broken. Some believe the solution is to implement blockchain-based identity schemes. While this is well-intentioned, the best approach is to use the blockchain as a root of trust while keeping everything else off-ledger. Couple this approach with implementation of open standards and you have the ideal architecture to solve the identity problems of the future. Key...

U.S. Permanent Resident Cards with SSI
Markus Sabadello, Danube Tech

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...

Self-Sovereign Identity in a European Digital Single Market – Quo vadis?
Erik van Zuuren, Trustcore.EU, Solvay.EDU

When European citizens will be acting in the online Digital Single Market, it is clear that trust and security but also data protection plays a vital role. A way to achieve this is to combine (Self Sovereign) eIdentities, Strong Authentication and Trust Services. Lots of work has been done in the last few months on ESSIF (The European Self Sovereign Identity Framework), including on how this could be given legal certainty through alignment with eIDAS.  Though still in evolution, a clear...

Building an Holistic Identity
Julian Wilson, Valido Limited

In 2018 the UK pioneered legislation [CMA9] which allows non banks to access the financial networks, subject to account holder consent. In March 2020 with the introduction of PSD2 this legislation will be extended to all of the EU and also to Credit Cards and other regulated entities: giving access to over 1.3bn accounts. Ecospend, an FCA regulated Open Banking service provider, are building a self sovereign data assertion layer on top of their existing bank connections. The envisaged...

The Journey to the Trust Over IP Stack
John Jordan, Province of British Columbia
