Self-Sovereign Identity: Ideology and Architecture – Christopher Allen – Webinar 51

Internet cryptography and Self-sovereign identity (SSI) pioneer Christopher Allen talks about essential insights and reflections around historical, technological and ethical aspects of Self-Sovereign Identity at the 51st webinar in collaboration with Rebooting the Web of Trust (RWOT) and Alianza Blockchain Iberoamérica as part of the events that took place at RWOT in Buenos Aires (Argentina).

Christopher is an entrepreneur and technologist who specializes in collaboration, security, and trust. As a pioneer in internet cryptography, he’s initiated cross-industry collaborations and co-created industry standards that influence the entire internet. Christopher’s focus on internet trust began as the founder of Consensus Development where he co-authored the IETF TLS internet-draft that is now at the heart of all secure commerce on the World Wide Web. Christopher is co-chair of the W3C Credentials CG working on standards for decentralized identity. Christopher has also been a digital civil liberties and human-rights privacy advisor, was part of the team that led the first UN summit on Digital Identity & Human Rights, and was the producer of a half-dozen iPhone and iPad games, and of Infinite PDF, a non-linear media app.
