Speaker "Armin Ebrahimi" Details Back



Identity in the Digital World


Identity in the Digital World You are signing up for another service and once again you have to give up your phone number, ID information, personal preferences and other details about you. It’s not just a pain, but what if someone else tries to be you and knows your details? Well, ShoCard provides a means for you to definitively prove who you are without having to give away your private data over and over again. It uses the blockchain as a fully encrypted, public and distributed data store to allow individuals and enterprises to manage identity information in a completely secure way. With this approach, ShoCard addresses the increasingly difficult problem of managing identity in both real-world and on-line contexts without spreading the details of your identity and private information. This presentation describes the ShoCard model and includes a pilot use case for global identity management solutions
