Welcome back to another OWASP PDX podcast.Our special guest today is Kaliya Young. She is an expert when it comes to self-sovereign identity on the Internet. For many of us who build and integrate authentication systems into our web apps, an identifier is usually nothing more than an e-mail address or an account number that we define and not the individual. Kaliya and other industry leaders are looking at changing this by creating an open standard based on existing Internet protocols that give individuals the sovereignty to control their own identifiers. Twice a year since 2005, people come to meet at the Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) to discuss these matters. Kaliya is the co-founder of the workshop that also brought other technologies to the forefront, such as OAuth, OpenID and FIDO. The next workshop is going virtual this year from April 28 to April 30, 2020. Go to https://internetidentityworkshop.com for more details. Kaliya is interviewed by John L.
