  • Speaker: Nabil Mellal
  • Duration: 45mn
  • Format: talk

Presentation

Unlike the physical world, we still don't have a solution to prove our identity. We also consider the security and data protection and ownership aspects as every individual ought to have the right to control his or her own online identity.

You should be able to decide what information about yourself is collected as part of your digital profile, and of that information, who has access to different aspects of it.

Being a solution to this complicated equation is the promise of distributed self sovereign identities.

During this talk, we will discuss the state of the open standards around DIDs, DID-Auth, DPKI, and Verifiable claims that are being implemented and how blockchain distributed ledgers can help implement the underlying infrastructure needed to achieve this goal.
