WISeKey deploys CertifyID integrating digital ID with blockchain

Wednesday 11 July 2018 | 10:23 AM CET

WISeKey, a cybersecurity and IoT company, has fully deployed its CertifyID integrating digital identity with blockchain technology.

The solution acts as a digital identity dual factor authentication based technology that sits on top of a blockchain. The CertifyID BlockChain is constantly growing as new blocks are added to it with a new set of recordings. Each CertifyID node gets a copy of the CertifyID BlockChain and gets downloaded automatically upon joining the CertifyID network. 

The system is totally decentralized and can be operated at national or local level using a distributed identity ledger run by trusted parties spread across the blockchain. WISeKey is already implementing this project in several countries. This includes the previously announced partnership with the Government of Andhra Pradesh, the seventh largest state in India, which aims to explore implementation of digital ID blockchain used to enhance the provision and security of citizens’ identity.

CertifyID BlockChain works also with mobiles via the WISeID app allowing users with the app to keep their digital identity and passwords on an encrypted vault that generates hard-to-crack passwords, and safely synchronizes data between computers and devices on multiple platforms, using secure cloud storage.
