Decentralised ID/SSI – Has it killed the Federated Identity model?

A look at the realities of the Self Sovereign/Decentralised (SSI) model of identity provisioning. Some of the issues covered will include:

  • Do users care about data sovereignty?
  • Do interoperability issues within this model need to be addressed? The panel will discuss economic and regulatory motivations, lack of conformance to specific standards or standard profiles, and incorporation of different networks in different stages of the maturity lifecycle.
  • The UI/UX of self-sovereign identity including the work that IIW and others are doing in this area.
  • The issues of authority in the self-sovereign model include entitlement to attributes, authority sources for verification, and so on
