At the December meeting the OMG issued an RFI on Disposable Self-sovereign identity, an idea we are starting to explore at the IOTA Foundation, particularly in the Covid and healthcare space and in collaboration with the TangleEE working groups. Responses are due this week, and the IOTA Foundation is submitting a detailed set of answers to the questions in that RFI. We see opportunities for a standard or standards in that area, both in terms of a formal definition of ‘context’ (since disposable SSIs are effectively contextual), and in terms of the detailed technical requirements to provide disposable SSIs within IOTA Identity, using the W3C DID and Verifiable Credentials standards. We expect that the OMG will be able to issue an RFP for contextual or disposable SSI in June. The IOTA Foundation would be able to respond to that RFI.
