Identity Management on Blockchain – Privacy and Security Aspects

by   Andreea-Elena Panait, et al.

In the last years, identity management solutions on blockchain were proposed as a possible solution to the digital identity management problem. However, they are still at an early stage and further research needs to be done to conclude whether identity systems could benefit from the use of blockchain or not. Motivated by this, we investigate identity management solutions on blockchain intending to give the reader an overview of the current status and provide a better understanding of the pros and cons of using such solutions. We conduct an analysis on ten of the most known implementations, with a focus on privacy and security aspects. Finally, we identify existing challenges and give new directions for research.
