Users are often not in control over their personal identifiable information (PII) and digital information is easy to be collected, analyzed and cloned. Hence, PII is subject to be shared without awareness. Lots of massive data breach events show that users' PII are often stored in plaintext and privacy issues have been the primary concern of users. Furthermore, in General Data Protection Regulation (DGPR), industries are required to protect users' PII and privacy. Compliance and regulations are driving us to develop new identity management systems. Blockchain is a decentralized, distributed and public digital ledger and can be used to record transactions among multiple parities. Hence, blockchain can be potentially used to manage users' PII in a decentralized way. However, how to enable users to store their PII on blockchain and use it without privacy breach is challenging. Furthermore, how to realize authentication and identification in decentralized systems is interesting.
The aim of this special issue is to promote research and reflect on authentication, identification and identity management in blockchain, with emphasis on the following aspects, but certainly not limited to:
