Identity differentiates one person from another and a basic property relating to human interaction. The digital revolution has had a huge influence on this property, and on the way people represent themselves within interconnected digital networks. During the initial stages of  this revolution, connectivity was prioritized. This focus meant that  user control of identity, resources, and datatook a backseat. The lack of well-defined identity protocols for the internet meant that centralized identity systems evolved as the only practical way to handle user interactions online, only to result in reduced data security and privacy.

As a result, organizations, individuals, and their associated interests have started revising the foundational models, technologies, and standards required for interactions in digital environments. We begin our discussion on decentralized identity fundamentals at this point. Our new Decentralized Identity course focuses on relevant technologies in order to develop a comprehensive understanding of the decentralized identity ecosystem. You can learn more about how different entities use decentralized identifiers to create connections and information through verified credentials. You will discover that this is more than just a Decentralized Identity foundation level course as you explore concepts that can bring about the next generation of web experiences.
