Microsoft Working to Scale Blockchain for Grand Distributed ID Schemeby David Make Binary Informatics
Microsoft wanted a very good federated identity system since the early 2000s, as it gave the world project Project Hailstorm, also known as ".Net My Services," so that an online service network knew a little about you and the information that You want to share. with others.
The Hailstorm has passed, he retired years later as a Geneva server and now seems to have found his way into a conceptual heir, driven by a chain of blocks that Microsoft today calls decentralized digital identities.
Alex Simons, Head of Program Management at Microsoft, said, "Over the past 12 months, we've been investing in developing a set of ideas for using Blockchain (and other distributed technologies) to create new types of digital identities, identities, designed from scratch to improve privacy, security, and control. "
Microsoft's identity aspirations, he wrote, now focus on decentralized, user-driven identification schemes, so a single data breach can not give criminals the keys. from her kingdom.
"After studying decentralized storage systems, consensus protocols, blockchains, and a variety of emerging standards, we believe blockchain technology and protocols are sufficient to enable decentralized identification.
