Testing and Analysis of Self-Sovereign Decentralized Digital Identity Technology

3 pagesPublished: February 16, 2023


The emergence of the Internet has generated new functionalities in our daily lives: data sharing, people communication or even the creation of a new “digital life” within the virtual world. Nowadays, each user visits many websites and web applications, in which the owner companies stores certain information from the user to be able to use the services offered. As a result, the user’s digital identity is scattered in many websites databases. During the last few years, some solutions have been developed, proposing a new digital identity solution that is known as Self-Sovereign Identity. This solution allows the decentralization of the user personal data and the self-sovereign identity management using blockchain technology. This paper shows a proof of concept of a simplified self-sovereign identity system that allows the user to manage their personal data with different external and compatible web services.
