Frequently asked questions
How do you create a self-sovereign identity?
Self-sovereign identity (SSI) is the idea that individuals should own and control their digital identities — not organizations. To create an SSI, users present their credentials to a trusted third party, which verifies that the credentials came from an issuer they trust, creating a “trust triangle.”
What is self-sovereign identity blockchain?
Self-sovereign identity (SSI) blockchain leverages the shared public ledger framework of blockchain to secure user identities. As the name implies, each transaction or “block” is recorded in a connected chain that is visible to all blockchain users. This makes alterations virtually impossible without detection, in turn providing a clear and auditable trail of identity data permissions.
What is SSI authentication?
While self-sovereign identity (SSI) offers increased control over identity data and permissions for users, it still requires an additional layer of authentication to confirm identity. Here, multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions such as authenticator apps and biometric scans can help companies confirm user identity data.
