Overview

Overview

Identification and credentials are easier for everyone to work with when they’re digital: vaccination cards, academic qualifications, occupational licenses, employee ID and more. But this highly personal information must remain private and secure. 

Governments, businesses and educational institutions are turning to blockchain as a proven way to enable a secure and trusted infrastructure and improve services.


Benefits

Speeds and promotes trust With blockchain technology, information about identity is auditable, traceable and verifiable — in just seconds. Individuals can curate their own profiles and control data sharing. Issuers easily connect with others and provide nearly instant verification of credentials. All participants are empowered by a platform anchored in trust. Private and secure The blockchain-based platform handles the infrastructure and security without exposing any of the data used to generate credentials. Only permissioned network participants have access, and all actions and business processes are tamperproof and permanently captured as blockchain transactions. Flexible and agile Built on the guiding principles of open standards and interoperability, IBM’s ready-to-use blockchain-based offerings work with credentialling solutions around the world. This simplifies credential sharing, and builds the trust chain from wallet to wallet and to enterprise systems. Create a solution or join an existing network. Customize the network using the tools of your choice.
