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.

Preliminary agenda, to be confirmed:

Time Title Contents
Intro Introduction to SSI, what is it, and what's happening right now
Overview Presentation: Technical overview of SSI standards, protocols, etc.
Demos Show+Tell of various SSI initiatives, concrete tools and PoCs
Workshop 1 Deep dive into SSI technologies (DIDs, VCs, DID Auth, Agents, etc.)
Workshop 2 SSI and existing identity technologies such as OIDC, WebAuthn
Workshop 3 Challenges of SSI, e.g. key management, governance, trust frameworks, etc

Open Source Identity Management Projects

Representatives of various OSS projects will report on best practices, integration patterns and solution stories.

The details agenda is being worked out.



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!
