Leverage the power of decentralized identity in your application
The Decentralized Identity SDKs allow you to offer next generation digitial identities to your users. Decentralized identity takes an approach that removes the need for a trusted third-party service altogether. In its place is blockchain technology, the key innovation that can be used to anchor the identity and provide a trusted source.
The main difference with decentralized identity is that every identity in the system is a peer to every other identity. Whether it’s a user or a server, each has its own identity and can partake in decentralized identity operations with any other identity.
An identity wallet is used to store and manage encryption keys, peer connections, and verifiable credentials associated with a decentralized identity.
Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) are a W3C standard that underpin verifiable, decentralized digital identities.
Pairwise Key Exchange
Key exchange protocols between two decentralized identities allowing private and trusted peer-to-peer connections.
Peer-to-Peer Encrypted Communications
Inherent to decentralized identities is the ability to perform end to end encrypted communications between peers.
Identities can make assertions which are cryptographically verifiable by the receiving party.
