Self-sovereign identity is an emerging digital movement involving complete user control of data without relying on centralised institutions . With the proper framework in place , this philosophy can bring many opportunities for both consumers and businesses venturing into Web 3.0 .
UKISS is building a self-sovereign identity and security infrastructure supporting DIDs , VCs , and other crypto assets , complemented by our cryptographically secure Hugware ® wallet . Potential collaborators for this project , which will comply with the World Wide Web Consortium , include Singapore-based Jupyton .
Here ’ s what a typical DID process looks like and how it can apply to the UKISS Ecosystem :
The DID process involves a controller assigning an identifying document to the subject . This document can store a range of VCs representing credentials like driving licenses or education certificates . When users secure DIDs with the UKISS blockchain , the DIDs and VCs have the potential to become portable and interoperable across distributed ledger technologies .
VCs are cryptographically secure and privacyrespecting , enabling verification by presenting only a subset of the holder ’ s data . The VC process also eliminates the need to reissue credentials . This capability potentially allows DIDs to be adopted rapidly across e-commerce , human resources , and education sectors , among others .
