If you'd like to learn more about the concept of self sovereign identity, look no further than this video by Drummond Reed. He breaks down the first handful of chapters of his book, 'Self Sovereign Identity' using a helpful powerpoint. I'd definitely recommend the book. It's a great introduction to the whole concept and how individuals can begin taking back control of their digital identities. Here's a quick summary of the book itself:
Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) is a set of technologies that move control of digital identity from third party “identity providers” directly to individuals, and it promises to be one of the most important trends for the coming decades. Now in Self-Sovereign Identity, privacy and personal data experts Drummond Reed and Alex Preukschat lay out a roadmap for a future of personal sovereignty powered by the Blockchain and cryptography. Cutting through the technical jargon with dozens of practical use cases from experts across all major industries, it presents a clear and compelling argument for why SSI is a paradigm shift, and shows how you can be ready to be prepared for it.
