Welcome to DID

An organic, self-sovereign approach to Blockchain-based ID management

DID Login App What does DID Do?

What is Decentralized ID?

The Problem

People are resistant to change, and efforts to digitize ID's have been met with a considerable amount of backlash as well as hacks. People are waking up to the concept of a self-sovereign ID where the users are in control of their IDs.

Governments and corporations have struggled to provide adequate identity management services for users over the internet. Furthermore, other Blockchain-based ID projects are trying to replicate the current ID issuance and transfer models from the real-world by simply implementing it over the Blockchain.

The problems include:
  • ID ownership: who owns your Identity document or your website credentials?
  • Private key management: how is it transferred to the user?
  • Smart features: will digital ID remain just a simple record?
  • Proving ID: how can a user prove his identity by providing a digital record?
  • Protecting ID: Can a digitized ID document ever be un-hackable?
  • Data usage: When will unauthorised use of personal data end?

The Solution

The concept of Self-Sovereign Identities has been made possible by the recent advent of Blockchain technologies. At Decentralized ID we have developed a scheme; empowering people by giving them ownership of their ID data.

Our organic and alternative approach to identity makes users the issuing authority of their own ID document. This, in itself, is a paradigm shift. Imagine you, the citizen, issuing your own passport and then requesting the Home Office to verify it.

This solves a number of problems:
  • ID ownership: You, the user are the true owner of your own ID card/Driving license.
  • Private key management: remains always secure with the user who is the originator.
  • Smart features: DID’s ID documents become a programming unit to extend upon.
  • Proving ID: not just the authenticity, the DID system also proves ownership of an ID.
  • Protecting ID: We store the proof of data thus only making relevant data available on provision.
  • Data usage: Imagine visually seeing data usage permissions on every field every time you log in into a website.

Technology

ID Transfer

DID presents a novel way to transfer ID data over the Blockchain. Our technology implements an underlying data structure called an ID tuple. This coupled with anonimity and ECIES-backed security assure a smooth, private and trusted method to transfer IDs. This is the same as either logging into a website or being asked to present your visa at an airport.

ID Issuance

The DID system issues IDs on the Blockchain in a self-sovereign style. Users request verification of their own data. Thus, rather than becoming issuing authorities, the other party becomes the "verifying" party. The IDs are represented as smart contracts on the Blockchain. This unique ID issuance system enables a user to prove his identification as well as proving ownership of said identification.

BOCA

In this trust-less world, DID attempts to bring some sanity and some check in the Blockchain world. A BOCA is to replace an SSL certificate of the current Internet world. BOCA provides the much-wanted 2-way trust mechanism. Before you give away your ID for inspection, you as the user also get to see the authenticity of who is requesting the data.

ID Issuance


The only fully developed and readily available ID issuance mechanism on the Blockchain. The DID mechanism ensures privacy, protection and immutability of an ID document.

Login Services


Transfer your ID securely over the Blockchain. DID provides a complete system for your portal to plug into. Say goodbye to usernames and passwords, and do it with a scan on the Blockchain!

Trust Mechanism


With implementation of a BOCA certificate, organizations can now provide trust to the users. A BOCA certificate is like an SSL certificate of the Blockchain world.

Blockchain Networks


Whether it is a permissioned or a public network, the DID system is versatile and independent of the underlying Blockchain network. The system can simply adjust to the organization's needs and blend in.

APIs & Terminals


Interoperability is at the core of the DID system. The same ID tuple that describes your ID is also used by terminals to authenticate and pass data. APIs, portals, and terminals are integrated to mimic the current workflow.

Management Systems


DID provides a complete ID management system for organizations and governments. We provide portals and integration into portals on your current system.

Smart Features


Your organization and your business-case have their own requirements and at DID, we can work with you to custom-build the smart ID features required in your system.

SAY HELLO TO A NEW REVOLUTION

Smart Blockchain-based Digital IDs
1
The most secure form of Encryption: We are the only organisation that implements ECIES encryption to transfer IDs and for digital record keeping
Self-Sovereign IDs: Requested by the users, in the user's control, privacy-centric IDs.
2
Future-Proof: Rather than storing data, we store the proof of data. No hacks - ever!
3
Immutable record: The Digital IDs are issued on the blockchain as a smart contract
4
5
Smart-Cards: The users can now prove their age without giving anymore info. The digital ID attributes (e.g. age) independently
