Original Panel Description

Traditional identity systems are mostly geared toward authentication and access management for known entities. A decentralized identity system adds a focus on authenticity and how a community can establish trust across the boundaries of any ecosystem. In a decentralized identity future, credentials can be shared between parties with authenticity, security, and privacy guaranteed; or at least, that’s the promise.

This 2019 panel session described this new approach, assessed industry and vendor offerings and addressed the prerequisites and timing of this nascent approach. We contrasted this model to one in which individuals “rent” IDs for every site they may conduct business with. We provided insights to help enterprises better understand what this new environment is, how it benefits the enterprise and whether it was ready for “prime time”.
