Self-sovereign identities using the Hyperledger ecosystem
In contrast to conventional, extensively utilized networks, the blockchain is a peer-to-peer network that can operate without a centralized authority. This indicates that the nodes in such a network are not needed to be formally authorized or verified by a centralized authority in order to participate in it. Since the entire network validates every transaction, the network is taken for granted to be reliable. In order to impose his authority on the network, an adversary would need to acquire control of the majority of the nodes, which assures confidence. This master thesis aims to develop a self-sovereign identity management system by utilizing the Hyperledger ecosystem capabilities. Users of such a management system could select which of their identity attributes they want to share with particular service providers in order to use their services.
