Distributed Ledgers And The Evolution Of Identity


In this episode:

  • Brian discusses his path from his work as one of the developers of the Apache Web Server to the Hyperledger Project’s Linux Foundation, and how the Foundation pulls together distributed ledger and contracts with a focus on the enterprise.
  • Brian’s take on the CULedger, and its similarities (and differences) to the development of the Domain Name System.
  • You spoke to a lot of the CEOs at the AXFI conference, how do you feel about CULedger?
  • How distributed networks provide control over personal identity.
  • Factors that contribute to the difficulty of adopting Identity and how distributed ledger plus Identity overcomes some of these problems.
  • How GDPR and healthcare are driving the maturation of Identity.
  • How Hyperledger and Sovrin are working to provide opportunities to the financial services industry, as well as reduce complexity, including the complexity and expense of physical processes.
  • A conversation on who owns an individual’s data and the responsibilities of an agent with access to an individual’s data.
  • Why “agency” is becoming a key Identity concept, what it means, and what entities are agents.
