Disposable Identities & Trust

“Who can you Trust? How can you Trust? with Disposable Identities” Presentation, Discussion and UX Design Session on a decentralised approach to building trust online. Run by Lorna Goulden and Marcel Darienzo from the Twinds Foundation (twinds.org) focusing on the user interface of Self-Sovereign Identity – in particular the challenges of designing a truly user-friendly way to own, manage and protect the identity of people, things and data online.

A presentation will introduce the evolving trends in Digital Trust followed by a live demonstration of a work-in-progress solution ‘Twinds Connect’ – with insights from early user testing. This will be followed by a discussion on core UX challenges such as: How to establish anonymous-yet-trusted connections with others? How can anonymous ‘Things’ be trusted? How to back-up and recover decentralised ‘identities and data’ wallets? And should the responsibility lie completely in the users hands? Concluding with a UX Design session on the Twinds Trust-Check in order to uncover new and innovative ideas on how we can establish Trusted Connections.
