Hosted by the Linux Foundation, Open Source Summit connects the open source ecosystem under one roof. It’s a unique environment for cross-collaboration between developers, sysadmins, devops, architects and others who are driving technology forward.
Hyperledger’s Exec Director, Brian Behlendorf will be speaking at the event on June 30 at 12:25pm CDT. His talk is below:
Digital identity: Increasingly online trust and privacy simultaneously through blockchain
Digital identity is gaining a lot of traction as a driver for blockchain adoption. There is growing recognition across many markets that reshaping how digital information is managed and verified can simultaneously increase online trust and privacy. The Hyperledger community is working hard to develop and deploy blockchain-enabled identity technologies and solutions with an eye towards decentralizing control of information and creating new models for verifying identities.
Brian will cover some of the core projects in the Hyperledger greenhouse that are key to building identity solutions and share some applications where these technologies are already being put into action.
