Microsoft and Decentralized Identity

In the project that Microsoft’s Identity Division has been working on the last 18 months, the Redmont giant embraces the technology to create a decentralized identity system. In their recently release, white paper claims to help to build an open, trustworthy, interoperable, and standards-based Decentralized Identity (DID) solution for individuals and organizations.

At the moment, our identity data is scattered among a number of companies, often being shared further on, and it’s getting harder and harder to control. The Microsoft solution intends to combine blockchain and off-components to create a system, where you have full control over your ID – and you simply grant access to them to the third parties. The system will be complemented with a wallet-like app for managing DIDs and associated data.

We have already witness the trend of commercializing the blockchain technology, and in the next months this market will be really interesting to watch.
