SSI for Education

Self-Sovereign Identity provides a secure way for individuals to manage personal data in a protected environment. They can share these with potential employers or institutions. These personal data may consist of achieved grades, certificates, or skill-based data.

Interoperability & open standards.

Interoperability and open standards are an essential foundation for the introduction of new technologies in education and learning. The discussion about standardization and how these standards can be effectively used is a good starting point. The use of recognized international standards creates an interoperable basis for the adoption of new technology in education. We actively contribute to the development and implementation of these standards.

The following standards are at the basis of this technology:

W3C's Decentralized Identifiers & Verifiable Credentials for verifiable data
OpenID Foundation's: OID4VP, OIDC4VCI, SIOPv2 for authenticating and exchanging data
The European eIDAS 2.0 legislation for digital identity wallets and digital signatures
ED1Tech's: Open Badge 3.0 for verifiable skills
