Hyperledger In-depth: An hour with Evernym: Privacy-Preserving Verifiable Credentials in the Time of COVID-19
Identity projects need to support business objectives, be easy to adopt, and protect the rights of the identity holder. That is a tall order, but real world deployments show this to be possible through the use of distributed ledgers. In this session, Hyperledger member, Evernym, will focus on the analysis and discussion of two use cases where legacy identity solutions were unable to meet the needs, but ledger based solutions have been successful: covid credentials for travel, and employment credentials for staff movements. Andy and James will introduce the solutions and are eager for feedback. By the end of the session, we hope you will be able to distinguish use cases where digital identity makes sense, as well as understand how Hyperledger Indy and Aries can play a role.
* Why digital identity projects need a distributed ledger like Indy
* Why digital identity projects need an open protocol like Aries
In the “Hyperledger In-depth: An hour with… .” series, Hyperledger members share learnings from their projects and try to answer all the hard questions about the pains of working with DLTs. It is not yet another webinar: participants will be encouraged to take part, come with prepared questions and voice opinions. Expect live demos and tutorials, stories from the battle field and hopefully some heated discussions. Let’s get out of the zoom fatigue and engage to share experiences and build a stronger community.
