SSI and Verifiable Credentials are the latest development in identity management. They offer many benefits over existing federated identity management systems. UBITECH is participating in this years’ EU Identity and Cloud Summit as part of a panel for discussing the integration and benefits brought forth from the adoption of SSI in the healthcare domain. Dr Thanassis Giannetsos, Head of UBITECH’s Digital Security & Trusted Computing Research Group, will be discussing the open challenge of how to build trust into the SSI ecosystem.
Currently, there is no way to ensure that each entity is in fact the one it claims to be. How can someone be sure that the DID really belongs to the claimed entity? Towards this direction, our latest work on leveraging hardware-based tokens that can offer you the proof of knowledge to protect the usage of the Verifiable Credentials will be discussed.
