In this research, one of the leading experts and thought leaders in the digital identity space brings his latest thinking to enterprise innovators. He explains the value of the relationship view of identity, the nature of authentic digital relationships, the trust bases of identity systems, and the architecture of the identity metasystem, including decentralized identifier communication and the self-sovereign Internet. He then explores how to operationalize digital relationships and the potential of generative identities (e.g., verifiable credentials) and credential exchange. He concludes with a deep dive into self-sovereign identities in production: the UK National Health Service staff passport, Bonifii’s MemberPass for credit unions, the International Air Transport Association Travel Pass, and others. The project is a must-read for enterprise leaders looking to understand their opportunities in identity platforms and applications.
