Data privacy is dead. Social login is not the answer. Over thirty years of cyber security internal controls have fallen short of protecting our data. Traditional identity and access management (IAM) systems, aka Web 2.0 IAM, have evolved but only exacerbates the proliferation of centralized identity repositories. Centralized identity repositories that have for decades been the “Crown Jewels” of every malicious hacker or nation state bad actor to be the gateway to our personally identifiable information. A new paradigm shift in the identity management industry is here, Web 3.0 IAM. Blockchain identity management has many names. Decentralized identity. Self-Sovereign Identity. Multi-source identity. All define the same new IAM future. An identity management system powered by distributed ledger technology.
We will cover the basics of what is Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and this evolution of the IAM space. The webcast will showcase how one of the SSI leaders in the blockchain identity space, Sovrin, works. Sovrin.org is the leading SSI public identity network solutions in the Blockchain world. It is an open source project managed by the Hyperledger Indy project within the Linux Foundation.
