IDunion is a cross-sector association of 27 partners that is building a production-level infrastructure for verification of identity data in finance, manufacturing, public sector and healthcare. The association addresses demand for migrating centralized identity systems towards decentralized self-sovereign management of digital identities for people, organizations and machines. IDunion has (i) launched an Hyperledger Indy test network, (ii) built components for allocation, verification and management of digital identities and (iii) researched aspects of governance, regulation (eIDAS, GDPR), cybersecurity, interoperability, business models and usability. This presentation will share the outcome, experience and challenges of the IDunion initiative, which might be valuable to guide developers of self-sovereign identity networks and give feedback on Hyperledger Indy/Aries.
