Can Blockchain Enable Identity Management?

Posted on in Presentations

Blockchain continues to gain traction in the market place as a compelling solution for making identity and access management (IAM) more cost effective by harnessing the power of distributed members in order to “crowdsource” identity services. This session will review an attempt to prove this hypothesis through a proof-of-concept (POC) built for a not-for-profit healthcare consortium.

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn what blockchain is and how it can help solve problems within IAM.
2: Understand the intended end-state and key players in the blockchain identity ecosystem.
3: Learn about the key elements and lessons learned from this POC.
