Pilot Study - Sierra Leone Elections 2018

On the ground, during the elections in Sierra Leone during March 2018, our team issued polling cards as digital IDs on the Blockchain. These blockchain-based polling cards were put to use to simulate voting in the Presidential elections.

How can we help you?

Governments:

Issue the most secure form of ID cards in the world. Un-hackable, future-proof, smart Digital IDs are now a reality.

Corporations:

DID provides the most secure way to issue a bank account or a financial/medical ID on the Blockchain.

You:

All DID software and schema exists to empower You - the user. We want your input and your direction. Join the DID Foundation today!

DID Foundation

Decentralizing your ID over the Blockchain.

Protecting your ID

1

The #1 objective of this foundation is to protect and put you in control of your ID on the Blockchain. At it's heart, the foundation exists to decentralize your Identification to protect YOUR interests.

Providing Trust

2

The foundation will form a trust platform where publishers and subscribers gather together to transfer ID over the Blockchain securely and with full trust of both parties.

Crypto-Positive

3

We believe that crypto technology is a new parallel Internet being formed today. And we want to be the reason and the first step that people take towards a crypto-future.

About the Foundation

The DID Foundation is Blockchain-agnostic

Blockchain Originated Certificate of Authenticity (BOCA)

Say hello to the SSL certificate of the Decentralized world! The DID foundation will re-imagine and re-engineer subscribers' trust in authenticity over a decentralized network. Before you provide your ID or data to an organization, you can now check over a decentralized network if the requested transaction comes from a verified source.

Learn more about BOCA draft proposal in our Whitepaper.

Putting Your ID in your control

The DID system and the DID Foundation are geared towards protecting your ID and putting you in control of your ID. This is how DID protects your ID:

Traditional Systems

DID System

Your ID is stored on a private cloud

Your ID is stored on your own device

Your ID is in control of an organization

Your ID is in your control which you transfer as you require

Your ID is being abused and tracked

The DID Foundation ensures that any usage of your data is approved by you

There is no proof of ID transfer

Proof of transaction available on a distributed ledger

SSL is breakable and monopolized

BOCA certificates ensure security and legitimacy of the request

No way to issue IDs securely

Complete Blockchain backed ID issuance scheme

The Token: DID

The DID token provides a means for the foundation and the software to operate. The token is either used as in-app credits or as Voting rights to the system. We are committed to increasing the worth of these tokens whether it's by increasing the number of transactions that a token can make or providing in-depth information to holders of our tokens. We intend to make sure that the DID token holders see a positive outcome of their token holding.

One of our main objectives is to provide ID verification to the masses. These tokens, when the system is fully operational, will provide a greater value to holders than its current worth at the moment. Learn more about our tokens in the Whitepaper.

Blockchain Agnostic

We have seen the future and it's in Decentralized networks. DID is a schema, foundation, API, workflow and a set of procedures. We are Blockchain agnostic and want to be deployed on any and every Blockchain to see what will serve users the best.

While we are currently based on the Ethereum network and are finding it the most mature and versatile public network. This said, we are open to a new, stateless Blockchain in the future. Read more about this in our Technical Timeline.

A Platform of Trust

The DID foundation wants to get publishers and subscribers on a single platform to streamline ID/login/cookie requirements in the decentralized world. This means coming to consensus on issues concerning how ID is used, whether publishers would accept anonymity if confirmed by the DID foundation, ID traversal to other parties etc.

The current state of ID protection and sharing is abysmal. This will change with the Decentralized revolution and we want to be the voice of reason and an arbitrator between publishers and subscribers. We are also in talks with a few Government agencies in the UK to see how trust in official IDs can be decentralized and be 100% tamper-proof.

We are passionate about a Decentralized future. If you are too, Join the DID Foundation.

Proposal & Demo of ID transfer & issuance workflow

DID TXNs

12

thousand

While we are currently based on the Ethereum network for the sake of maturity and versatility of the platform, we are finding the Ethereum network unfit for ID transfer needs because of overheads.

We have devised a way using smart contracts on a blockchain to show how an ID transfer system can be developed. This is a proof-of-concept workflow and requires further development as well as investigation into newer technologies. The demo software available from this website is provided without any warranty and users are requested to be very careful with their ID transfers till we start issuing BOCA certificates in Q2 2018.

Technical Findings

ID Verification Workflow

  • Step-1: Initiation
    • ID-requirer provides a QR code / contract address to ID holder.
    • ID holder scans this QR code / inputs the contract address.
  • Step-2: BOCA Verification
    • The DID app seeks user's permission
    • The DID app seeks a BOCA certificate from the underlying decentralized network.
    • The result of authenticity check is shown to the user.
  • Step-3: Package Deployment
    • User is asked permission to share specific fields/ID set.
    • The DID app encrypts the data.
    • The encrypted key is deployed on the decentralized network.
    • Encrypted data is sent directly to the ID-requirer.
  • Step-4: Key Decryption
    • To decrypt data, BOCA holder authenticates itself as the owner of the certificate.
    • ID-requirer gathers the key from decentralized network.
    • Once decrypted, the ID-requirer uses your data as per permissions given by the user.

ID Transfer

A two-way trust mechanism based on a decentralized network.

Use Cases: Website logins, ID verification in person, Entry, Account holding, HR, Border Control, As a Debit Card

Technical Discussion: Please find in Technical Whitepaper

ID Issuance

A prototype of ID issuance by an authority to show membership.

Use Cases: Govt issues ID cards, Passports, Visas, Driving Licenses, Bank accounts, Loyalty Cards, Memberships, Medical records.

Technical Discussion: Please find in Whitepaper

P2P ID transfer

ID verification in person.

Use Cases: In-person verification of parties, business vcards, HR, Personal loans.

Technical Discussion: -Study available in Q1 2018-
