Blockchain - Based Personal Identity Security System
Mohini Vasdeo | Sujal Arora | Vaibhav Sharma
Abstract: In today's digital ecosystem, where our identities are becoming increasingly integral to our sense of self, it has become crucial to preserve and manage identities as private data. The current centralized control of identity management raises concerns over privacy and security, leading to the need for a decentralized approach. Blockchain technology, which has gained popularity in the cryptocurrency industry, has emerged as a promising solution with its decentralized approach. Our major project aims to explore the use of blockchain technology in implementing a self - sovereign identity management system. Self - sovereign identity is a concept that allows individuals to take control of their own identities and manage them without relying on centralized authorities. In our project, we will provide a unified perspective of the core principles underlying self - sovereign identity, covering the components of identity proofs and authentication solutions for various self - sovereign identity implementations. We will analyze the various existing options and identify research gaps and obstacles involved in developing a comprehensive identity management system. We will focus on the architecture of a self - sovereign identity management system and discuss the relevant actors involved in such a system. We will explore how blockchain technology can be used to solve the problem of distributed user - centric identity. We will also examine how privacy can be ensured in compliance with legal mandates, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our project will involve the development of a prototype system that will demonstrate the potential of a blockchain - based self - sovereign identity management system. The prototype will provide a proof - of - concept for the proposed system, highlighting the potential benefits and challenges of adopting a blockchain - based self - sovereign identity management system. Our project's conclusion will provide insights into the potential of this approach, highlighting the obstacles and trade - offs involved in developing a comprehensive identity management system.
