Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI)
Thanks for sharing these resources. Identity and privacy are two interrelated topics that are of critical importance in thinking about learner agency and promoting opportunity. One of the key questions that the Department wants to explore is how the 10 SSI principles are applicable to the discussion of identity in the education use case. For example, what are the different meanings those 10 principles have in the education-specific regulatory environment, whether the applications of these principles are constrained by different assumptions in the current operational dynamics, and what community values will guide design decisions across the various blockchain implementations so that we achieve student success.
I am excited to kick off this great conversation on Friday and to continue it with this group moving forward!
Thanks, Feng, and Happy new year/decade :)
On a related note, if anyone wants to dive deeper down the SSI rabbit hole, get involved in the T3 Innovation Network --> Pilot Projects related to Empowering Learners and Workers in particular.
Happy New Year, Everyone!
Thanks to Sharon, US Department of Education will hold the 2nd Summit on Education Blockchain. The summit will focus on identity and privacy in the context of the education use case.
Speaking of identity, many of you may have heard or read about Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI). Christopher Allen, who is credited as the architect of SSI, has created Christopher Allen’s Ten Principles of SSI:
He also says that “when properly designed and implemented, self-sovereign identity can offer these benefits while also protecting individuals from the ever-increasing control of those in power, who may not have the best interests of the individual at heart.”
