The latest paradigm for identity management is “Self Sovereign Identity” (SSI), or “Decentralised Identity”. The concept is that not organisations, but the user is the centre-point of an ID, and that credentials are derived fromdistributed sources and reused, all to be defined by the user, to optimize SSI privacy. This track addresses thecurrent state of adoption, initiatives of the EU to push SSI, and discusses the challenges and latest developments.
