The digital transformation promises the interaction between an increasing number of entities such as persons, devices, vehicles and sensors. Whereas 5G tackles the problem of connectivity, secure digital identities are the key ingredient for secure and trustful interaction between partners, and thus form an important cornerstone of the "Internet of Everyone and Everything". Current identity solutions rely on central providers to manage and certify digital identities as trusted intermediaries in transactions.
In this talk, we will discuss the notion of Self-Sovereign Identity – a concept giving entities full control and responsibility over their own digital identities, while maintaining trust, privacy and data economy. While trusted third parties are still required, they are decoupled from the actual transactions between partners, thus decentralizing identity management.
