As technology has continued to advance at an accelerated rate and people are uploading more and more of their lives online, many common methods of identity authentication haven’t kept up with the pace. The result of relying on the current singular modes of authentication has been an increase in breached records and declining faith in organizations to have the right protocols in place to safeguard sensitive information effectively. We have the tools to fix this; all that’s missing is the right approach that will bring privacy and stability back to digital identity.Fortunately, the world is starting to see actual action being taken to address the digital identity problem head on. Earlier this year, a first-of-its-kind, blockchain-based digital identity network launched in Canada. The network leverages both the trusted organizations involved and the strong technological frameworks used to build it—including Hyperledger Fabric—to enable consumers to help verify their identities quickly and securely to access services and products.In this session, Dmitry will explain how this network formed, how its launch marks a step forward in how we will improve digital identity, as well as lessons learned so far and where to go from here. He will also then get into the more technical details and explain how Hyperledger Fabric and Aries interop play fundamental roles in enabling the private and secure sharing of information to take place.
