Feedback form is now closed.
Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI), also called Decentralized Identity, is an emerging paradigm for digital identity that many open source projects are building upon. This talk will elaborate on why it is extremely important for the open source community/projects in the SSI space to stay aligned with the evolving open standards as well as become an important feedback loop for standard development. The speaker will present an overview of the various efforts in the open standard communities including the W3C Credentials Community Group and relevant working groups, the Decentralized Identity Foundation, and the Trust over IP Foundation, the latter two being hosted at the Linux Foundation. She will also highlight key open source projects that implement these standards. The technology will be contextualized relative to earlier paradigms for digital identity including traditional Enterprise Identity and Access Management and protocols like OpenID for social login. Attendees will walk away with a clear understanding of open-standard-based open source development and a starting point to engage with the communities developing the technology. The material being shared will echo the new course being developed at LF Training focused on Self-Sovereign Identity.
