Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:
The session was a discussion on addressing challenges to digital identity with a particular focus on underserved, marginalized communities.
We took each slide as a discussion topic, I4A Council is also bringing together a discussion paper and this feedback is important for inclusion in the whole. All are invited to contribute.
Here is a link to the discussion document:
Key points that were made in the discussion:
There is a genuine issue about misuse of the SSI term, of misunderstandings about the differences between identification and identity and genuine challenges to SSI in particular.
In terms of next actions, no conclusions were reached from the list of options on the last slide, however writing a white paper, collaborating across the community and the importance of the role of governance were all highlighted as most likely points to start in terms of basic myth-busting and getting the conversation on the table.
