Self-Sovereign Identity

Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) is an emerging paradigm around the idea that digital identity should be created, managed, disclosed, and destroyed by a subject alone, without dependency on an intermediary or central authority. It can be considered an evolution of the user-centric identity concept, but with even stronger assumptions and guarantees. Identity is modeled using a combination of components such as identity wallets, agents on personal devices as well as in the cloud, and decentralized registration and discovery mechanisms built e.g. with blockchains. Proof-of-concepts with SSI are currently being conducted around the world, and standards such as Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs), Verifiable Credentials, DID Auth, and others are emerging.

During the event, you will learn about the roots, principles, and current state of the SSI concept. You will also have an opportunity to take a closer look at the various proposed technical components and protocols that make up an SSI system. You can learn about current concrete projects and initiatives that implement SSI. Finally, there will be opportunities to discuss challenges of SSI, and how SSI can relate to existing identity infrastructure such as OIDC, SAML, WebAuth, eIDAS, etc.

Each session will begin with a presentation of some 20 min. The audience can then explore the topic for longer part of the session interacting with the presenter.

Preliminary agenda, to be confirmed:

Time           Title                Contents Contribution
09:00-09:30 Intro session Introduction session, agenda of the day Chairman; Markus Sabadello
09:30-10:15 Strategy of the Dutch Blockchain Coalition on SSID The Dutch Blockchain Coalition is a consortium of academia, the financial industry, technology companies, the land registry, notaries, medical domain, and many others. The objective is to make Self Sovereign Digital Identity work nationwide in the Netherlands, using the SSID, DID, MSID concepts. After a large set of first POC’s there are tangible results, governance conclusions, whitepapers, and the vision and strategy are carried on at government level. What are these lessons learned, best practices, and challenges? Jacoba Sieders (ABN AMRO)
10:15-11:00 Demo: data sharing in Dutch health care system Together with Dutch industry partners TNO is experimenting in their SSI-lab with components (apps, protocols and principles) to develop the future IT data sharing infrastructure. The traditional way of IT backend integrations between organizations are replaced by an ‘user in the loop’-approach. In this talk TNO will present a demo of provisioning of medical supplies, covering IT systems of the general practitioner, health care insurance and supplier of medical supplies. Oskar will share their experience and the challenges ahead including SSI app ecosystems and Q&A protocol. Oskar van Deventer (TNO)
11:00-11:45 Blockchain on the Move Report on Jolocom's recent pilot project in Antwerp and related work. Kai Wagner (Jolocom/Bundesblock Deutschland)
11:45-12:30 TrustNet and the SSI sandbox in Finland Project overview; Evaluating MyData Principles versus shortlisted DLT providers; DLT-based pilots and PoCs with the joint effort of industry and eGovernment; FIndy - Finnish DLT test infrastructure in works Harri Honko
12:30-13:30 Lunch break
13:30-14:30 Awesome Research Areas in Blockchain and SSI Decentralization is the mantra of many blockchain and self-sovereign systems and because of convenience we see frequently the emergence of agent based system which are at least temporary in control of data or blockchain assets. If we take into account the recent data breaches, it probably best to have no data concentration whatsoever, but this taps into highly interesting and still very much unsolved topics, like: decentralized key-management & recovery, zero-knowledge proofs, user interfaces for lay-users, decentralized storage and long-time quantum security. During this track we will discuss about limitations and the current level of implementation, embracing "radical" decentralization. Thomas Zeinzinger (Lab10)
14:30-15:30 Coffee break
15:30-16:15 W3C Verfiable Credentials/FIDO in Health IS I describe how we enhanced FIDO to support strong authorisation using W3C Verifiable Credentials, and describe the prototype implementation that authorised patients to book and cancel appointments and reorder repeat prescriptions. David Chadwick
16:15-17:00 Eco-System-of-Trust Building an open „Eco-System-of-Trust“ for people, organisations and things (Problem statement; overall concept; what we want to achieve) Sebastian Zehetbauer, Staatsdruckerei
17:00-17:15 Closing session

This track is facilitated by Robert Garskamp, IdentityNext.

Wednesday, 13.Feb., 9:00-17:30 and Thursday, 14.Feb., 9:00-16:00

The unconference is using an agile format with participant-driven contents, covering the attendees’ current interests. TIIME's format has been designed for solving trust and identity issues, developing and sharing new concepts. If you are looking for a substantial discussion on this subject it is likely that you will meet the right people here!

To get an idea about the contents look at Topics or into the proceedings from previous conferences.



How the Domain Name System can support identification and trust services (Jon Shamah, Alberto Crespo)

This presentation dives into the challenge to build a a global cross-domain trust infrastructure on the domain name service using existing off-the-shelf DNS/DNSSEC implementations. It should be possible to query and combine trust aspects related to identity, business, reputation etc. and understand the assurance the policies provide. Such a system has to be designed with respect to the data protection, security usability and economic requirements of an identity system in mind. The talk will report on the general architecture, and elaborate the concepts that where developed in the LIGHTest project.


Trust and the Internet of Things (Robin Wilton, ISOC)

This keynote will explore the relationship between users' choices, certification schemes for consumer products, and trust in the Internet of Things. The session will describe the Internet Society's current and planned work in this area, including its research, partnerships, and potential areas for collaborative work with the TIIME community.
