eduID is a digital student identity, independent of any institution. Currently, eduID offers a way for educational institutions to grant guests - for example lecturers and researchers from other institutions and external advisors - access to internal systems. That, however is just the beginning for eduID. A possible future for eduID lies in the concept of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI), a novel approach to digital identity which puts the user at the center. During the second half of 2021, on behalf of the eduID project team, I explored what eduID could look like as an SSI and what standards could be used to implement such an SSI system.
