Self-Sovereign Identity: Decentralized Digital Identity and Verifiable Credentials

Preukschat, Alex, Reed, Drummond




Self-Sovereign Identity gives you a radical new perspective on how we represent ourselves in the world.

In a world of changing privacy regulations, identity theft, and online anonymity, identity is a precious and complex concept. Self-Sovereign Identity lays out a roadmap for a future of personal sovereignty powered by the Blockchain and cryptography.

Self-Sovereign Identity gives you a radical new perspective on how we represent ourselves in the world. This case study-driven book cuts through the jargon and hype to expose the amazing potential SSI offers for security, privacy, identity, and even uprooting the way the global economy works. As you learn the philosophical and sociological concepts that underpin SSI, you'll appreciate what this radical technology really means for the shape of our lives, our businesses, and our futures.

「自主身份」為我們在世界中如何代表自己提供了一個全新的觀點。在隱私法規、身份盜竊和網絡匿名性不斷變化的世界中,身份是一個寶貴且複雜的概念。「自主身份」提出了一個由區塊鏈和密碼學驅動的個人主權未來的路線圖。這本以案例為驅動的書籍剖析了SSI所提供的安全性、隱私性、身份性甚至改變全球經濟運作方式的驚人潛力,並剔除了術語和炒作,讓讀者能夠真正理解SSI的哲學和社會學概念,並體會這項激進技術對我們生活、企業和未來形態的意義。購買印刷版書籍還包括一本免費的PDF、Kindle和ePub格式的電子書,由Manning Publications提供。
