Identity is vital for political, economic, and social opportunity. But systems of identification are archaic, insecure, lack adequate privacy protection, and for over a billion people, inaccessible. We all need a new approach to identity, each of us needs a digital identity we own, one which securely and privately stores all elements of our identity. A self-owned identity that seamlessly integrates into our lives and gives us complete control over how our identity data is accessed and used.
This session explores the foundational components of an open, standards-based, decentralized identity ecosystem for people, organizations, apps, and devices without centralized systems of identifiers, but able to verify the claims and assertions of identities for the purpose of establishing trust among entities.
