ABSTRACT

Why Self-Sovereign ID is Superior to Digital Identity


Self-sovereign identity (SSI) is a decentralized approach to digital identity management that emphasizes individual control and ownership over personal data. In contrast, digital identity (DI) typically involves the use of centralized systems, such as those employed by social media platforms, governments, and financial institutions, to manage and authenticate identity.
