Sovrin is a global, decentralized identity network.
Sovrin is a decentralized, global public utility for self-sovereign identity. Self-sovereign means a lifetime portable identity for any person, organization, or thing. It’s a smart identity that everyone can use and feel good about. Having a self-sovereign identity allows the holder to present verifiable credentials in a privacy-safe way. These credentials can represent things as diverse as an airline ticket or a driver's license.
Sovrin identities will transform the current broken online identity system. Sovrin identities will lower transaction costs, protect people’s personal information, limit opportunity for cybercrime, and simplify identity challenges in fields from healthcare to banking to IoT to voter fraud.
The Sovrin Foundation is a private-sector, international non-profit that was established to govern the world’s first self-sovereign identity (SSI) network. The Internet is missing a layer for secure identity which is currently costing us hundreds of billions of dollars each year.
The Sovrin network is permissioned: the infrastructure for ensuring consensus on identity transactions is provided by carefully vetted and permissioned stewards who independently own and operate their nodes on the network. These combine to form a system of checks and balances that earns trust through action rather than promises. We are the Sovrin Foundation.
Patient consent is one of the fundamental tenets of healthcare. Patients have the right to determine their care and treatment, and have a right to privacy. But consent and privacy are not optimized in today’s Web architectures.
Internet Of Things
Internet of Things (IoT) represents the Internet’s next growth phase. But without a significant change in the approach to security, the explosion of IoT devices will greatly increase security risks.
Members of Congress listen more closely when they know they’re hearing from true constituents. How would they know if a slew of angry tweets really comes from voters in their district?
Sovrin prevents unwanted correlations by creating and managing one-to-one identifiers for each relationship. Pairwise pseudonymous identifiers reduce opportunities for surveillance.
Sovrin supports trustworthy, patient-shared attributes using a built-in mechanism of verifiable claims. This avoids both myriad, costly point-to-point integrations as well as a centralized hubs.
Sovrin provides consent receipts for memorializing promises made to patients about how their data will be used and can record patient consent.
Sovrin allows patients to control claims made about them.
This voter has four verified claims in their Sovrin agent:
Given these claims, Sovrin can be used to create a proof that these tweets come from voters in Congressional District 3.
At the heart of Sovrin architecture are three fundamental examples of “privacy as the default setting.”
