In this episode, we talk about the future of credential management – Self Sovereign Identity (SSI) also known as decentralised identity. SSI is an efficient, secure and privacy enhancing solution for identity verification. It puts individuals at the centre of the verification process and is the future of identity management.
Our special guest, James Monaghan, talks about how Evernym provides solutions in the area of SSI for businesses today. We talk about what SSI means, how it works, the benefits for individuals and businesses and importantly, examples of how it is being used to great effect today.
For any businesses interested in learning more about how they could benefit from building an SSI or decentralised identity solution, please contact James directly.
As we enter what is arguably, the start of our journey into a new era of digital innovation with huge benefits to individuals and businesses, we are excited to follow developments around the growth of Self Soverign Identity.
