Team, find here the agenda to our next technical working group session happening on May 3, 5pm CET. Feel free to suggest agenda items and topics of interest you want us to discuss. Looking forward to next week. thank you
Team, goal of the working groups is to provide greater visibility into our roadmap and more opportunities for the community to provide feedback on DFINITY’s contributions to the Internet Computer.
We are happy the community leads for the Identity & Authentication working group: @dostro and @brutoshi
Thank you for your engagement, looking forward to a successful collaboration.
Hello everyone! It’s a pleasure to work for you all.
By way of introduction, our team at Internet Identity Labs is on a mission to eliminate friction from the internet while constraining ourselves to absolute privacy and absolute security, and have introduced a few previews over the last few months of what we’re developing with NFID.
At the heart of NFID is Internet Identity, which we see as absolutely critical to the privacy and security of our online identities. Our goal for participating in this working group is to assist in improving core Internet Identity functionality without compromising privacy or security.
We’ve already worked with the community to submit PRs for two improvements, and hope these sessions will help prioritize more. So far we’ve:
Added support for Apple Passkeys (in Dfinity review)
Introduced improved recovery phrase protection from attack (in implementation review)
Looking forward to working with Bruce and the AstroX team on organizing the community effort towards improving the lifeblood of the future of the world’s online identities!
I missed the announcement of the constitution of these groups, I just read your session notes. My question is did you mention the possibility of developing or evolving the system towards a SSI (Self-sovereign identity) model?
An identity and credentials can then be shared with other platforms SSI. Using verifiable credentials, identifiers, etc. Or do you think an SSI should use Internet Identity and build a layer on top ?
I think this is becoming a very interesting (hot) topic at the moment.
Thanks for the link, I didn’t know about this solution. I’ll look into it further. At first reading, it doesn’t seem to me that this is an SSI. It represents only a part of it (one of 7 basic building blocks).
