Digital Citizen Identity
Foundation for the Digital
As all economic and social activity is shifting to the digital world, it has become clear that current identity practices are not sustainable. People must register on numerous online platforms and portals and trust various parties to store their personal data, hoping that their privacy will not be compromised. But the regularity of data leaks and privacy breaches proves that people are right to question whether their sensitive data is being properly secured.
At the same time, organizations have to work hard to verify the identities of their consumers and ensure that they can trust all transactions. With our TrustGrid™ ecosystem, we are working to solve these challenges. Our digital identity services are based on the following principles:
Identity is the combination of all attributes and properties that uniquely describe a human being. We truly believe that these attributes should be controlled by their owners — citizens. TrustGrid™ provides a distributed identity ecosystem, where a verified digital identity is used to support various identity representations.
Support for Citizen Personas
How it Works
Digital Identity Constitution is established
Initially, a consortium network is created, and new identity service is activated. Consortium members agree on policies and identity attributes that constitute the new identity service.
- Create a new consortium network
- Invite consortium members
- Define policies regulating the constitution of citizen identity.
Identity Workflows are Defined
As the next step, the consortium members can create identity workflows, defining various identity representations, and establish privacy and confidentiality policies for the network.
- Create identity workflows
- Define new credentials (identity representations)
- Create rules to enforce privacy, confidentiality and citizen consent
- Publish the identity service to make it available for everyone.
People enrol in the service and opt-in for their digital identity representations.
- The flexible and customisable enrolment process
- iOS and Android mobile apps
- People can subscribe through a QR code scan
Digital Credentials Are Available for Use
Digital identity representations can be used in various contexts based on the defined privacy and confidentiality policies.
- Age Verification
- Know Your Customer
- Background Check
Frequently Asked Questions
TrustGrid™ supports a distributed consortium model, where multiple member organizations agree on privacy and confidentiality policies attached to digital identities. It is possible to use a single-member consortium for a federated (centralized) model, which can be later extended to a distributed model if needed.
Consortium members can propose changes to the network constitution and initiate a voting protocol for other members to accept or deny the changes. TrustGrid™ facilitates member communication through the SaaS Portal and allows members to track all changes into the network.
TrustGrid™ can be deployed as a Lite instance (suitable for pre-production integration) or as an Enterprise instance with full support of Confidential Computing. Please refer to our Pricing page for more details.
TrustGrid™ is available as a SaaS service and can be deployed in a public cloud through our SaaS Portal. The deployment is fully automated, and the system is ready to use once it is deployed.
