Clarity on Dfinity & Self-Sovereign identity

Looking at Dominic’s tweet here:

As a Developer should I expect the IC itself will be providing SSI services? If not, I think this is a critical enough component that I would actually start a serious project here.

For example, one might imagine that in a real version of Dfinity Streams It would be reasonable to enforce that we create a single “stream” canister per user. Creating the canisters costs cycles, but it’s worth it. However, we don’t want to let a fictitious bot come along and create 100s of streams - draining our pool of cycles. Or, maybe the service has a built in token that users can donate to streams. Each new user gets some of these. In this case, we’d need to be sure that users are individual people.

Hopefully we get a look at this in action tomorrow with some of the projects at TechCrunch for the first time

I cannot seem to find any more info on SSI for Dfinity. Can anyone else point me in the right direction?


Is the Internet Identity considered SSI?

I dont know. It might be a first step toward SSI. :man_shrugging: But I do not think it can be classified as SSI.


Have there been any updates on Dfinity SSI?

That tread if you don’t already know it may give you some information:

and also the current implementation:
