This is a very important book—it looks at the problems of digital identity just when we need to desperately solve them.
What is our identity? It is everything we do in our daily life, but with the identity data records siloed in banks, big corporations, and governments. Currently, we rely on these third-party records to prove who we are and what we own—but we do not control them.
Self-Sovereign Identity changes everything.
Imagine selling a house, applying for a driver’s license, or checking an applicant’s credentials without evaluating a portfolio of papers gathered from various centralized institutions. Powered by secure Blockchain registries and cryptography, Self-Sovereign Identity is empowering people across the globe to take back control of their own data using digital credentials controlled by the users themselves. It eliminates the need for organizations to manage customer data directly, reducing costs, and massively increasing security. SSI is creating new, richer, and more trusted relationships online, and promises to be just as important as the emergence of the Internet.
