Trust For Social Communication: Building the Trusted Web

COVID-19 forces us to bring a significant part of our social activities from the physical world to the cyber world. We need to build a trust mechanism to ensure complicated social activities over the global Internet. This session will discuss how we can establish digital trust for our daily business and transactions. Mechanisms for digital identity and identifiers based on blockchain technology are the foundation. We need to build layers of technologies and operations to ensure governance and harmonization among different stakeholders to solve social pain points over the foundation. In March 2021, the Japanese government published a report to deal with this issue.
