From IIW

Register here for IIW 30: https://iiw30.eventbrite.com

What topics are you planning to present about or lead a discussion about at this IIW?

  • open standards
  • PIMS adoption research; mapping personal information economy.
  • DIDs, DID Resolution
  • identity inoculation
  • Physician identity
  • deepfakes and content identity
  • SSI-based secure messaging
  • End-to-End Encrypted Messaging
  • Orchestrated gossip; cryptographic identification techniques and use cases
  • Habits and development of new habit loops
  • recent updates from Jolocom
  • Guardianship, delegation/mandates
  • biometrics
  • Self-sovereign identity in an enterprise and organizational wallets
  • SSI
  • Consumer Products & VCs Connecting legacy identifier systems with DIDs/VC


What are you hoping to learn about or hear a presentation about at IIW?

  • Everything!
  • New advancements
  • progress in identity tech
  • DIDComm, Verifiable Credentials, Aries
  • SSI use cases, technology advancements, interoperability between technologies, demos, etc. Sovrin and Hyperledger technologies
  • Verifiable credentials
  • How to be more involved in the growing tech communities and contribute to building a greater understanding for all around the topic "human"
  • DIDComms work and other community standardization work
  • More about digital identity and the technology behind it
  • blockchain interop
  • Self-Sovereign Identity and Internet of Things
  • Different approaches to enrollment and genesis
  • DID
  • Trust Network - actors and roles
  • Very interested in Sidetrees protocol - Interested in Presentation Request standards being carried out by the Claims and Credentials working group in the DIF - Very interested in zero-knowledge-proof technology, and how it can be applied to Verifiable Credentials in an interoperable way
  • Use cases that are being monetized Implementation/specifications that can be built upon today Considerations for future use cases & implementations
  • DIDs, VCs, EDVs etc.


What are the critical questions about user-centric identity and data you hope to discuss with peers at IIW?

  • immutability vs. right to be forgotten (or right to change identity), techno and non-techno solutions protecting analog identity
  • How to make to TRULY self sovereign (ie interoperable and portable)
  • integrations with IOT etc
  • Interoperability between SSI technology implementations.
  • where do others think we are headed in the current climate
  • Practical barriers to bootstrapping / getting critical mass for self-sovereign identity; security challenges with SSI (e.g., with recovery and delegation)
  • How can we prevent abuse of a vulnerable person with SSI?
  • How to realize identification and ownership of Internet of Things devices? - How to enable personal clouds?
  • Delegation of authority in hierarchical organizations
  • Cross system validation and transportability
  • Standardized format for Zero Knowledge Proofs and Verifiable Credentials Standards around requesting Verifiable Presentations / Selective Disclosures
  • How the privacy/crypto provisions and ML/agent-intelligence can safely be layered on top of end-user control+benefit
  • Data privacy
