Work Description:
The focus of my research is the development of a decentralized digital identity for a smart city environment. With the misuse of personal data and data breaches that have recurrently led to identity leaks and theft, the decentralized identity approach is gaining increased interest in academia and industry.Decentralized digital identity provides a means of digital identification without relying on any external authority, allowing entities to control their identity and data flow during digital interactions, while increasing data security and privacy. This field of research is still new, but with many opportunities and research challenges.
