Day/Session:Wednesday 4L

Convener:Duane Johnson

Notes-taker(s): Duane Johnson

Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

We started off talking about the slide that Duane prepared, dividing identity into "subjective" and "objective" sides.

We proposed various alternatives, thinking of it as a "spectrum of trust" and "relative trust" that is relative to either the issuer's perspective or the verifier's perspective.

We noted that a "claim" implies subjectivity (as opposed to a "fact").

We also talked about Kaliya's master’s thesis at The conversation then shifted towards uPort implementation details because of the proportion of participants from uPort or interested in uPort.
