SSI Strong Authentication using a Mobile-phone based Identity Wallet Reaching a High Level of Assurance

  title={SSI Strong Authentication using a Mobile-phone based Identity Wallet Reaching a High Level of Assurance},
  author={Andreas Abraham and Christopher Schinnerl and Stefan More},
Assurance in digital authentication means represents a fundamental requirement in the authentication process of digital identities. Different level-of-assurance (LoA) describe the trustworthiness of the authentication specified by various standards. Some traditional governmental identity systems achieve a high LoA. Nevertheless, the recent self-sovereign identity (SSI) model, which utilizes identity wallets to ensure that the identity data control remains with the related user, still lacks a…

An Overview of Cloud Identity Management-Models
An overview of different cloud identity management-models that have already emerged up to now is given and these models are compared based on selected criteria, e.g. on practicability and privacy aspects.
A Novel Mobile Wallet Model for Elderly Using Fingerprint as Authentication Factor
This work has exploited fingerprint verification availability on mobile devices to provide a user friendly and secure digital wallet payment facility to elderlies who are unable to avail this facility due to the complex infrastructure of traditional authentication mechanisms.

Privacy-Preserving eID Derivation for Self-Sovereign Identity Systems
Self-sovereign identity (SSI) strives to return the control over identity data to the users by building on decentralized architectures but is currently hampered by a lack of qualified identity data that satisfies the services’ requirements.
A Survey on Blockchain-Based Self-Sovereign Patient Identity in Healthcare
The state-of-the-art in Blockchain (BC)-based self-sovereignty and patient data records in healthcare is reviewed and an analysis on the design trade-offs is provided.
BBM: A Blockchain-Based Model for Open Banking via Self-sovereign Identity
BBM is proposed, a blockchain-based self-sovereign identity system model for open banking that provides a reliable secured communication network between users and third-party service providers and enables users to control their own identities and data.
Batching Techniques for Accumulators with Applications to IOPs and Stateless Blockchains
This work develops techniques for non-interactively aggregating membership proofs that can be verified with a constant number of group operations, and provides a constant sized batch non-membership proof for a large number of elements.
Universal Accumulators with Efficient Nonmembership Proofs
This work gives an efficient zero-knowledge proof protocol for proving that a committed value is not in the accumulator, and presents a construction for dynamic universal accumulators, which allows one to dynamically add and delete inputs with constant computational cost.
Self-sovereign identity on public blockchains and the GDPR
An overview of the existing Sovrin self-sovereign identity on the Hyperledger Indy public permissioned blockchain as well as uPort and Jolocom on the Ethereum public permissionless blockchain and a discussion on the GDPR-compliance of the blockchain-based identity concepts are provided.
