Zero Knowledge Proofs

Zero-knowledge proofs are a powerful cryptographic technique at the heart of self-sovereign identity (SSI). This post should help you understand what they are and how they can be used.

[Advanced] Health Passes and the Design of an Ecosystem of Ecosystems

Ever since the Covid pandemic started in 2020, various groups have seen verifiable credentials as a means for providing a secure, privacy-respecting system for health and travel data sharing. This post explores the ecosystem of ecosystems that is emerging as hundreds of organizations around the world rise to the challenge of implementing a globally interoperable system that also respects individual choice and privacy.

[Advanced] Exploring Value Propositions to Drive Self-Sovereign Identity Adoption

This research suggests that the SSI community needs to develop a cohesive design strategy, a clear narrative and vocabulary. Value needs to be defined across cultural context, while targeting accessible, high value niche opportunities to build momentum toward sustainable adoption.

[Intermediate] Principles of SSI - Sovrin

These foundational principles of SSI (available in 15 languages) are intended for use by any digital identity ecosystem. Any organization is welcomed to incorporate these principles into its digital identity ecosystem governance framework provided they are included in their entirety. The principles of SSI shall be limited only by official laws and regulations that apply in a relevant jurisdiction.

White Paper: Self-Sovereign Identity & IoT

This release from the Sovrin Foundation around SSI & IoT demonstrates great opportunities in IoT in addressing real security challenges, data provenance and opening whole new areas of operation.
