Also, Okta's article on "Decentralized Identity" (quite high level, some assumptions made).
What is Decentralized Identity? | Okta<https://www.okta.com/blog/2021/01/what-is-decentralized-identity/>


One clarification:
> Issuer: A party that issues access credentials, similar to an identity or OpenID provider.
During the presentation of the credential, end-user becomes an OP (Self-Issued OP).

Best,
Kristina

Per the Okta CEO:
CSO: Do you’ve gotten an opinion on self-sovereign id?

McKinnon: I do. I believe that it’s the long run. We’ve obtained to get it executed. The issue is: How does it get bootstrapped? How does it get helpful in sufficient locations in order that sufficient individuals use it to make it helpful? The place is it going to come back from? Is it going to come back from an enormous social media firm? Is it going to come back from an enormous IT vendor? Or ought to it come from an unbiased establish supplier like Okta?
