Practical application of distributed ledger technology: self-sovereign identity on the blockchain | Dentons - JDSupra | The Marteq Alert |
Self-sovereign identity is the notion that rather than having our information held by third parties (often without us knowing what that information is), individuals and entities instead have the ability to store and ultimately control their own digital identities. They can choose to provide select data points about themselves under conditions that they set when there is a need for such information collection,7 without having to rely on a central repository to store this information.8
