SSI Identity represents a paradigm shift in how we perceive and manage digital identities. Unlike conventional models where third parties control and validate our identities, SSI empowers individuals with control over their personal information.

At its core, Self Sovereign Identity is a decentralized approach that leverages blockchain technology to provide a secure and tamper-proof digital identity.

The major novelty of this model is that the identity with its attributes is controlled by the holder. Each can decide whether and when to share its attributes with third-party entities and has full control over them.

In practice, the SSI protocol protects privacy because no third-party authority is involved in the control chain: it is the users who decide how personal data are processed, transmitting those that are strictly necessary, and then storing them only for as long as is necessary for the transaction and certification. 

What are the benefits of Self-Sovereign Identity?

Users benefit from a more intuitive and flexible experience. Identity management becomes simpler, with the ability to access online services without having to repeatedly register the same personal information. This ensures a better customer experience, combined with increased security and privacy for the end user.

So, summarizing in 3 points what are the characteristics and advantages of Self sovereign identity, we can talk about:

●      Decentralization: SSI eliminates the need for a central authority by distributing identity verification across a decentralized network. This ensures that no single entity has undue control or access to an individual’s personal data. Read more about Decentralized Identity. [Ancoriamo articolo alla Decentralized Identity]

●  Blockchain Technology: The use of blockchain ensures the integrity and immutability of identity records.

●  User-Centricity: SSI places the user at the center of identity management. Individuals have the ability to selectively share only the necessary information with specific entities, enhancing privacy and minimizing the risk of data breaches.

DIZME: the InfoCert Self-Sovereign solution

on Blockchain technology and managed directly by the user with the legal value and the trust of a Qualified Trust Service Provider.

It’s an open ecosystem empowered by a Digital Wallet app that creates a bridge between the SSI Self Sovereign Identity world and eIDAS compliance.

Dizme enables reusability for users to gain access to physical locations, digital signing, and authentication by presenting a verified identity credential.

The user-held wallet is central to the solution, and can be leveraged via an SDK, as a white-labeled app. Alternatively,customers can choose to use a proprietary wallet or right the Dizme App.

How does the credential issuing process work? 

●      STEP 1: A user begins by onboarding and verifying their email, phone number, and conducting a selfie with active liveness detection. Passive liveness can be optionally added in the SDK version, with attack detection features and biometric authentication. 

●      STEP2: the user conducts identity verification for government-issued identity documents and facial matching. Identity verification is carried out with InfoCert’s proprietary technology for Italian documents, and partners for global coverage. To advance to a “Trusted Assure” level, InfoCert verifies the user’s eID, an existing digital signature, or authenticate against a bank and account information. An option for an in-person verification also exists.

Because many issuers and verifiers can issue or verify credentials from the same wallet, users are able to use their onboarded credentials in numerous ecosystems.

With Dizme, companies can unlock numerous use cases, especially in their human resources management. For instance, they can authorize their employees to enter the workplace or they can simplify the sharing of information by their employees by issuing credentials. This makes Dizme a true Corporate Wallet.
