While decentralized identity still exists as a nascent sub-field of the identity industry, the past few years have seen rapid experimentation and maturation. From emerging web standards like Decentralized Identifiers and Verifiable Credentials to growing adoption in the web3 space and finally increasing interest and pilot projects from large corporations and government, decentralized identity is almost ready for prime time. In this session I will cover the current state of the art in the decentralized identity space, the emerging patterns of design and adoption as well as make the case for why decentralized identity is worthy of our collective attention.
