SSI as technology brings a revolutionary approach to user privacy protection and keeping personal data secure and safe. The identity verifier, e.g. a train steward, receives and sees only the information you choose and share. All the communication happens via a protected channel established between you (your wallet) and the other participant, so you do not need to worry about a malicious third party getting to this data. The concept of SSI is designed so that the original issuer of the data (for example, a university) does not know that you, as the owner, are providing your data to someone else, which ensures complete privacy.
And as another benefit, you save a lot of time when visiting each of the bureaus separately. SSI is a safe and secure solution which protects your privacy and gives you the ultimate control over your data. Let’s see it in an example.
