Identity Hangout: Decentralised Identity

Navigation

Start:
March 21 @ 3:00 pm
End:
March 21 @ 4:00 pm

Join the second Identity Hangout to hear what’s new on the identity space. The GSMA Identity team will be joined by Andrew Tobin from Evernym to discuss the role of identity and the mobile industry in decentralised identity.

A new breed of decentralised identity frameworks are emerging which leverage distributed ledger technologies (DLT) such as blockchain to create trust frameworks via which users can assert information about themselves via zero-knowledge proofs, rather than needing to share the data itself. An example would be someone proving that they are over 18 in a commerce transaction, without needing to disclose their actual age, name, or other personal information. Decentralised identity frameworks allow users to prove and control their online identities without needing to rely on single identity providers like the social media players – the present anxieties around which, in terms of privacy, hardly need recapping here.

 

David Pollington, Head of Applications & Services at the GSMA will be hosting this Hangout focused on self-sovereign and decentralised identity and the future of identity within trends such as conversational commerce (RCS).

 

Andrew Tobin is responsible for Evernym’s activities in the EMEA region, and Head of Business Development globally. He will join the discussion around decentralised identity.

 

Richard Cockle, Head of Delivery at GSMA Identity, will give an overview of how the GSMA is working with the mobile industry to offer secure digital identity.
