7 November 2023– Ver.id, Dutch Blokchain Coalition and Truvity have been nominated for the Identity Innovation Award 2023. The winner – the best innovation in the field of digital identity – will be announced at the annual IDnext Event at Villa Jongerius (in Utrecht) on 4th of December.
Ver.id – an unified platform for verifying identities, signing documents, and authenticating customers. It makes it easy to accept various digital wallets on your website or online service. With the upcoming EU regulation, soon there will be at least 27 different digital ID wallets available on the market. IRCS, or Intermediary Relying party Credential Service provider acts as a trusted intermediary between a relying party (such as your business) and an Identity wallet provider (such as a government agency or bank).
Dutch Blokchain Coalition (DBC) – An increasing number of organizations are recognizing the potential of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and are developing ideas and pilot projects. However, the significant fragmentation of Identity systems and chains has resulted in the emergence of multiple decentralized solutions that cannot communicate with each other. Interoperability is essential and should be ensured at the outset of various developments. This can be achieved by adopting the same set of standards, known as a Technical Interoperability Profile. Therefore, the DBC created the Decentralised Identity Interop Profile.
Truvity –Built the Truvity platform, an API that people can use to create products powered by Self-sovereign Identity with developer documentation support and an entire demo environment showing a familiar use case (covid travel pass). This is just the beginning though, as they will be expanding their product well beyond its current functionality so that people can create eIDAS 2.0 compliant Identity products and simplify how companies/individuals build trust with each other. Not only for consumers to take back control of their identities but more importantly to handle complex b2b business processes, an underrepresented problem area.
