The Future of Identity: DIDs and VCs

Presented by

John Craddock | IT Infrastructure and Security Analyst at XTSeminars

About this talk

In this keynote, John Craddock will introduce you to the future of Identity with Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials (VCs). Today, users have their identity distributed, outside of their control, across many Identity Providers (IdPs). Users are constantly being asked to prove who they are to multiple services; some proofing can be arduous and time-consuming. How would it be if you owned your identity without dependence on IdPs and only needed to prove who you are once and use that proof as often as necessary? Come and understand the possibilities with DIDs and VCs. Microsoft has a Verifiable Claims service running in Azure AD, and you can test out your ideas and concepts.
