Hyperledger Aries: Open Source Interoperable Identity Solution – Nathan George – Webinar 30

Nathan George, Sovrin Foundation CTO, and Hyperledger Contributor will explain what Hyperledger Aries is and how it will facilitate an open source infrastructure for interoperable identity solutions.

Aries was born out of the work on identity agents and identity wallets that began in the Hyperledger Indy project. Aries is, in fact, the second Hyperledger project to spin out of Hyperledger Indy. The first was Hyperledger Ursa, announced in December 2018.

Self-sovereign identity based on DIDs requires strong interoperability and pluggability at the infrastructure level. It also requires great applications that offer end-to-end functionality so that users can accomplish jobs with greater security, flexibility, and privacy. Aries is expected to be a major step forward in this direction.

Aries will be the industry’s first implementation of interoperable open source wallets for digital credentials that use the DKMS (Decentralized Key Management System) architecture that Evernym pioneered under a contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
