  • SSI use cases that involve NFC, BlueTooth, and other transports besides HTTP
  • the people side of identity - the end-using people's needs and interests around it, what it really means for them, how to meet them there instead of attempting to force interest in high tech concepts, etc.

  • Innovation


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

  • Use cases for digital legal entity identification and user roles
  • What makes it fly?
  • What is the most practical way to put an SSI wallet into the hands of busy, yet politically minded citizens who want to participate in modern, sovereign governance?
  • Use cases for digital legal entity identification and user roles
  • How can we verify the validity of verification? How do we trust complicated-looking algorithms and products? (They are probably broad questions about cryptography and digital identities rather than SSI-specific ones)
  • How close are we to achieving the reality of self-sovereign identity?
  • How wide is the gap between self-sovereign identity and general access to user-friendly mechanisms to take advantage of this concept?
  • I am most keen to learn from the forum regarding regulatory hurdles; inter-country obstacles and related use cases that push for self-sovereign identity and individuals taking back their identity
  • How do we overcome the technology debt of existing centralized system to bring about decentralized solutions to ensure user-centric identity?
  • How Governments are getting involved and how they plan to bridge the gap between centralised and decentralized identity.
  • How to drive adoption by improving user experience
  • How to drive adoption when people are seemingly seeing SSI as a bad thing controlled by companies that don’t have their users’ rights or privacy in mind? (I’m thinking about how people are complaining about how SSI is (not) helping with discrimination, racism and so on.)
  • How are we going to interoperate with the Europe Green Certificate initiative?
  • Data interop, VCs in complex Verifier environments, Governance at the machine level
  • How to manage communications channels & social interactions that preserve SSI?
  • Use cases for digital legal entity identification and user roles
  • How to mange respectful relationships between people's HumanOS (aka human nature) and IT Systems and the game spaces and suasion therein?
  • What would be the preferred architecture for using SSI controlled data sets in commercial settings?
  • How to make VCs invisible without losing their functionality
  • What subelements of Identity systems are amenable to large scale infrastructure, and what elements are local/adaptable?
  • Why do individuals care? What will help them understand to care enough to take proactive action? How to we help enterprises to care enough to invest and make it easy for people?
  • Consent Management
  • Improve UX
  • How wallets/personal key management will continue to evolve: personally hosted, digital services, captured by Apple/Google?
  • What is difference between user centric and user empowering?
  • How can we enable people to have the rights and tools to control their personal data (data created by and about them)?
  • Is it possible to start a SSI identity system with secondary attributes like proof-of-address
  • limits and ethical applications of emerging standards
  • Use cases for digital legal entity identification and user roles
  • I'm interested in discussion interoperability methods between SSI standards and how that affects security.
  • Identity done badly is very dangerous, there are worrying and emerging examples of where so-called ""datification"" has created harms. We need some sort of code of practice/ ethical checklist. not sure, IIW will answer!
  • Use cases for digital legal entity identification and user roles
  • Interop and concerns about the prevalence of did:web
  • Why is this important and how do we effectively educate others?
