Controlling our ID with self-sovereign identities
Who am I? An existential question that is especially hard to answer in a connected world. Proving who we are online is complicated, when our ID cards are still physical. Plus, we gave up some control over our online identities, simply for convenience. A technology that is in development could help us regain control using a special form of digital wallet: Self-sovereign identities, or SSI, use cutting-edge cryptography, including zero-knowledge proofs. Bosch researcher Christian Borman explains how SSI will not only increase privacy but also have a positive impact on B2B interactions and supply chain management. Meanwhile, our host Geoff meets mentalist Thorsten Havener. Will he reveal Geoff’s true identity?
