Self-sovereign identity (SSI) is the next step beyond user-centric identity. Both concepts are based on the idea that a user must be central to the administration of his/her digital identity, which requires not only a user’s ability to use an identity across multiple locations but also true control over that digital identity, creating user autonomy. To accomplish this, a self-sovereign identity must be transportable, and can’t be attached to a single central authority or silo.

A self-sovereign identity must also allow users to provide claims about themselves, which could include personal data or attributes, and can even contain information asserted by others.
