Self-sovereign identity (SSI) is an emerging paradigm in digital identity that empowers individuals with the authority to manage and control the information used to authenticate their identity on various websites, services, and applications. Traditionally, users with persistent accounts across the internet were dependent on a limited number of large identity providers, such as Facebook and Google, who monopolize their identity information. This reliance on a few identity providers poses a challenge to user privacy and autonomy.

Alternatively, users who opt-out of these providers are forced to create new accounts with each service provider they interact with, leading to a fragmented web experience. SSI addresses these issues by enabling users to access services in a streamlined and secure manner while maintaining full ownership and control of their identity information.
