Identity makes self-sovereign identities possible.
In our ecosystem, users regain agency while dApps and other digital businesses reduce costs associated with verification.
Identity is a transparent Gateway to permissionless user verification.
Smart Contracts and Blockchains are at the core of Identity.com. As the network grows, Civic will stop being the only player in the ecosystem and new Requesters (IdR), Credential Wallets (Wallet), and Validators (IdV) start entering the system and interacting independently in the marketplace.
The User approaches a Requester to use a service or purchase a good. The Requester queries the Credential Wallet for the required PII attested by an acceptable Validator. Upon User approval in the Credential Wallet, the information is transferred to the Requester in exchange for access, and the Validator(s) that issued the attestation(s) get paid. A validation process occurs if no valid attestation is found in the Credential Wallet.
The identity verification ecosystem trades in attestations marked as blockchain transactions to verify credentials. Identity.com does not trade in personal information. This increases security, focuses on privacy and enables decentralization.
The Identity.com Gateway Protocol is a cross-chain oracle token model that enables any application operating on a decentralized ledger, such as a dApp, to add a permissioning layer that adheres to a prespecified framework of rules.
This toolkit contains libraries and applications for Identity Requesters to connect to the ecosystem.
This toolkit contains libraries and applications for Users to connect to the ecosystem.
This toolkit contains libraries and applications for Identity Validators to connect to the ecosystem.
Smart Contracts are fundamental to the decentralized nature of Identity.com. A collection of rules, automations and agreements ensure that everyone participates fairly and positively to the ecosystem, leveraging the power of the CVC token.
A transparent ecosystem can only be built on open sourced libraries. These libraries are designed to enable ecosystem participants to easily and safely connect to the marketplace and participate in identity verification.
The open source Applications provided here enable Requesters, Validators and Credential Wallet builders to focus more on running their business and meeting their requirements and less on coding on top of libraries or blockchains.
