The term Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) is still an under-analysed technology despite the great effort from the technology community. It refers to the digital movement that recognizes an individual should own and control their identity without the intervening administrative authorities. It is a special form of identity that enables the users to be in full control of their identity and its associated personal data, improving security and confidentiality, unlocking new business models so far not contemplated due to incompatibility with current data protection regulations.

The objective of the workshop on Self Sovereign Identity (SSI) is an opportunity to present results of the research undertaken in the SSI domain, exchanging information and experiences related to novel ideas or actual deployments and implementations related to SSI.


The topics of interest for this special session include, but are not limited to:

  • The future of Identity
  • Digital identity management
  • Decentralized Ledger Technology for Identity Management
  • Digital wallets
  • Data sovereignty
  • Data protection techniques
  • Cryptographic methods in SSI
  • Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs)
  • Verifiable Credentials (VCs)
  • Verifiable Presentations (VPs)
