Our goal: total confidence in digital identity

It’s a new day in digital identity management. One where identity owners have more control of their most personal information – and where businesses can worry less about managing it. Where identity issuers and verifiers can work better together today, while being able to scale together for tomorrow.

IBM is joining other digital identity leaders to design and implement global standards for the internet’s long-missing identity layer: decentralized, point-to-point exchange of information about people, organizations, or things – enabled by blockchain – created specifically for a world of many networks.

Building digital identity benefits for everyone

For identity owners

  • Control flow of personal data
  • Improved privacy
  • Manage identity and credentials through a simple digital wallet experience

For identity issuers

  • Standardize issuing of digital identity and credentials
  • Customize identity schemas with quick responsiveness
  • Quickly issue, update and revoke 

For identity verifiers

  • Engage in relationships with more trust 
  • Simplify and reduce time to know your customer
  • Ensure compliance with regulations

Leading the self-sovereign identity community

Our mission is to help clients onboard and interoperate in a world of many networks. Leveraging industry expertise with Promontory, an IBM Company, and artificial intelligence, we’re transforming business processes like Know Your Customer (KYC). It’s all part of putting users back in control, establishing more trust and changing how the world manages digital identity.
