It’s the Autonomy, Stupid!

Summary: The core value proposition of decentralization is autonomy. Without freedom to choose we can't build a thriving digital ecosystem that is as rich and full as the physical world we inhabit.

Handcuffs

In If you’re not Breaking Rules you’re Doing it Wrong, Simon Morris argues that the primary value proposition of decentralization is enabling the breaking of rules. He says:

The one value proposition that everyone seems to agree on for blockchain technologies is that they are ‘censor-proof’. And this matters only if you have something that someone wants to censor. To my mind the most interesting blockchain projects out there are the ones that enable the breaking of rules.

This article fascinated me and I spent a long time thinking about how this applies to Sovrin.

What bothered me is that Sovrin has made a point of having a strong governance framework that allows organizations around the world Continue reading "It’s the Autonomy, Stupid!"

Security Event Token (SET) delivery specifications updated in preparation for IETF 105

IETF logoThe two Security Event Token (SET) delivery specifications have been updated to address working group feedback received, in preparation for discussions at IETF 105 in Montreal. Only minor terminological updates were made to the Push Delivery spec following the working group last call (WGLC) changes in the previous recent revisions. Thanks to Annabelle Backman for the edits to the Push Delivery spec.

The changes to the Poll Delivery spec further aligned it with the Push spec, referencing shared functionality, rather than duplicating it. I believe that the Poll spec is now ready for working group last call.

IETF logoThe “COSE and JOSE Registrations for WebAuthn Algorithms” specification has been updated to address feedback received since working group adoption. The one breaking change is changing the secp256k1 curve identifier for JOSE from “P-256K” to “secp256k1”, for reasons described by John Mattsson. The draft now also specifies that the SHA-256 hash function is to be used with “ES256K” signatures – a clarification due to Matt Palmer.

Answering Questions about Self-Sovereign Identity

Summary: Identity professionals continue to have questions about self-sovereign identity (SSI). In this post, I answer a few questions that Susan Morrow raised about the commercial viability, security, privacy, and desired user experience of SSI.

Traverse Ridge

In Self-sovereign identity: 3 key questions (registration required), Susan Morrow asks some questions about the viability of self-sovereign identity (SSI). I actually found more than three. Here's some answers to Susan's questions.

After referencing Kim Cameron's Seven Laws of Identity (PDF), Susan states:

SSI is user-centric, but you don’t need to have a Self Sovereign ID system for it to be user-centric.

That's true. In fact, when we started Internet Identity Workshop, the mission was to explore user-centric identity. But, here's what I've found over the years: being about the user (user centric) doesn't necessarily mean that the user is structurally part of the flow, something Kim made central to his seven laws. I Continue reading "Answering Questions about Self-Sovereign Identity"

This is wrong:

Because I’m not blocking ads. I’m blocking tracking.

In fact I welcome ads—especially ones that sponsor The Washington Post and other fine publishers. I’ll also be glad to subscribe to the Post once it stops trying to track me off their site. Same goes for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and other papers I value and to which I no longer subscribe.

Right now Privacy Badger protects me from 20 and 35 potential trackers at those papers’ sites, in addition to the 19 it finds at the Post. Most of those trackers are for stalking readers like marked animals, so their eyeballs can be shot by “relevant,” “interest-based” and “interactive” ads they would never request if they had much choice about it—and in fact have already voted against with ad blocking, which by 2015 was already the biggest boycott in world history.

No on Universal Patient ID

Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Summary: Just as we're finally at a point where online identity system can solve the health care records problem without using a universal identifier, the US is poised to explore one. Let's not. Instead let's use identity systems that protect privacy.

Patient

Last week the House slipped a provision into the budget bill that would lift the funding ban on exploring a universal patient identifier. The ban is known as the Foster-Kelly amendment. If approved by the Senate, exploration of a universal patient identifier (UPI) could begin in earnest.

I strongly oppose the UPI or universal identifiers of any sort. While healthcare IT professionals may wish for a single identifier to make correlating information easier, I don't know many identity professionals who would advocate universal identifiers.

We have other examples of universal identifiers like Social Security Numbers and even cell phone numbers. Your email address is another universal identifier. The problem Continue reading "No on Universal Patient ID"

OpenID Connect Federation Progress at TNC19

OpenID logoCheck out the post OpenID Connect Federation Progress describing the recent updates that Roland Hedberg and I made to the OpenID Connect Federation 1.0 specification. We used the TNC19 conference – a gathering of federation experts – as a venue to get together to review and refine the specification. Besides getting lots done on the spec, I also really enjoyed the TNC conference and its attendees!

Given that the syntax and semantics should now be stable, it’s my hope that early adopters will start kicking the tires – building implementations and making trial deployments. I can’t wait for the useful feedback that results!

Thoughts on Libra

Summary: Facebook has announced their Libra cryptocurrency. This is good news for cryptocurrencies and market-incentivized networks. I worry that Libra's financial inclusion might come with an attendent loss of privacy or autonomy.

libra-digital.jpg

Yesterday, after months of speculation, Facebook announced Libra, a cryptocurrency with the mission of enabling a simple global currency and financial infrastructure that empowers billions of people.

That's a worthy goal. But, as you'd expect with almost anything Facebook does these days, there was a lot of reaction ranging from skepticism to outright opposition.

As Chair of the Sovrin Foundation, I've had a lot of people ask my opinion on Libra.

Organization

One thing that I like about Libra is that it's not just a Facebook coin, which is what I had imagined when I first heard about it. Rather, Libra is a Swiss-based organization and Facebook is just one of (eventually) 100 members. Voting in Continue reading "Thoughts on Libra"

Introducing PURDAH


This post is by =andy.dale from The Tao of XDI


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post







So I'm reading Neal Stephenson's latest novel 'Fall'... In Chapter 11 he introduces PURDAH... Personal Unseperable Registered Designator for Anonymous Holography.


He explains that Holography is from the original meaning of the term:

"A holograph is a document written entirely in the handwriting of the person whose signature it bears. Some countries (e.g., France) or local jurisdictions within certain countries (e.g., some U.S. states) give legal standing to specific types of holographic documents, generally waiving requirements that they be witnessed. One of the most important types of such documents are holographic last wills." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holograph

"So it's just an anonymous ID, with a fancy name?", Corvallis asks...

No, PURDAHs are all registered in distributed ledger technology so their veracity can be verified at any time. Unseperable means that no one can take it away from you, as long as you take reasonable precautions...

At least Neal seems to be paying attention!

DID Messaging: A Batphone for Everyone

Summary: DID Messaging can provide a secure, authenticated, and verified channel for every relationship you have.

Batphone

In my last post, I wrote about a demo given by BCGov, Spark NZ, and Streetcred ID at the last Internet Identity Workshop. That demo caused a lot of people to download and try out Streetcred ID's digital wallet. One of the features that Streetcred ID built into their wallet was peer-to-peer messaging based on DID Messaging and that led to some interesting insights.

A Brief Primer on DIDs

If you're not familiar with DIDs, take a minute to go read my article on Decentralized Identifiers from earlier this year. I'll summarize the relevant parts here:

  • DIDs are a new type of cryptographic identifier that are resolvable, non-reassignable, and decentralized (not under the control of a single authority).
  • DIDs have at least one associated public/private key pair.
  • The public key(s) and endpoints associated with

Am I Completely Missing Something or Did AirBNB Map View Just Go Away?

As heads-down as I have been working on SSI (self-sovereign identity) for the past 18 months (that’s why no posts during that period), once again a broken customer experience has provoked me to break that spell (last time it was the %$#@ wifi on United Airlines).

This time it’s AirBNB. It’s not perfect in many ways, but as an alternative to hotel rooms, it’s been a godsend. For both personal and business travel. So it’s become a mainstay of my travel planning. Until the last few times when I’ve gone to find the closest AirBNB listing to a destination (usually a conference site) and…

…no map view of listings. Just a flat table.

I thought I must be missing something, so yesterday I searched high and low on the page and then did some web searches to see what I was missing. But it appears it’s just…

Ordinary matter consists of protons, neutrons, and electrons and is composed of atoms. A signed affidavit may be required to obtain a refund.2.

The outer region of the atom has several electrons equal to the variety of protons, making the normal atom electrically neutral. The energy required to pair up two electrons inside an orbital is referred to as the pairing energy (P). The outer area of the atom consists of several electrons equal to the range of protons, making the regular atom electrically neutral.

Showing information from several perspectives helps to paper writer steer clear of pseudo-multiculturalism (Fish). Experiments need to be reproducible. Meanwhile, additionally, it takes an excellent imagination to understand the deeper insights of the topics.

An important one is brought on by the subsequent line. Military service members understand how to use crowd-sourced data and societal media for tipping and cueing. As a way to thrive, companies increasingly require access to strong AI research along with the proper talent to effectively deploy commercial solutions.
