Decentralized Identity Systems using Blockchains
Decentralized Identity Systems using Blockchains, How Web3 is addressing critical challenges associated with digital identities.
Welcome to the course ‘Decentralized Identity Systems using Blockchains’ where we begin a journey through the complexities of digital identity systems and introduce Decentralized Digital Identity solutions.
Our journey begins with building a solid foundation in the basics of identity systems, by understanding the critical features and properties that shape digital identities.
As we navigate the evolution of digital identity, we get into a timely conversation about why we need to discuss about digital identity now more than ever.
Then we delve into Decentralized Digital Identities. The course discusses the basic concepts such as Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials (VCs).
Then we spend some time understanding the role of blockchains in these identity systems.
We then will cover real-life implementations such as Decentralized Identity in Ethereum, polygonID, and a few other Decentralized Identity solutions.
However, no analysis is complete without acknowledging the limitations of current decentralized identification solutions. So, we will spend some time understanding the limitations and discussing how these limitations can be overcome.
Please note that this course does not cover any coding for Decentralized Identity systems. The primary goal of this course is to introduce the fundamentals of identity systems and how Decentralized Identity systems are solving some of the pressing issues in this sector.
