SSI stands for 'Self-Soverign Identity' and it's the idea behind a number of related approaches to digital identity, including the framework being developed by the Canadian government and described in this webcast. The core task of such a framework is to describe how we answer three key questions: does the identity correspond to a real person, is that person in fact the one being represented here, and has that person actually consented to the action being performed? These, in turn, are supported by a set of 24 'trusted processes. For more, see the #GCDigitalID Video, FWD50 Conference slide deck, the Consultation deck, the Trusted Process mapping analysis, and the Github repo (still a work in progress).
