SSI Fireside Chat with Phil Windley & Steve Wilson
11:45 - 12:30
We're setting the stage for our Digital Identity track with two true identity OGs. KNOW 2019 is excited to host a kickoff fireside chat with Phil Windley, Chair of the Sovrin Foundation, and Steve Wilson, Principal Analyst at Constellation Research. What does the future of self-sovereignty look like, and how can we move beyond the current status quo? We've been promised a "civil yet strenuous exploration of the space," so we're looking forward to hashing (pun intended) it out with these two experts
Mythbusters for the Age of Digital Identity
14:30 - 15:15
Since the days of our early ancestors, new frontiers have always been associated with myths, be them dragons, demons or wizards. The world of digital identity is no different; our Twitter timelines are full jargon, acronyms, and confusing terminology. This panel will debunk some common myths and misunderstandings. Authentication, validation, and verification are not the same things. Eligibility and identity checks are not interchangeable. Implementing digital identity standards are not too difficult. The panel will explore these misconceptions with reference to actual scenarios taken from their experiences delivering digital identity in the real world.
