First of all we need to introduce what is Self Sovereign Identity and what is a Verifiable credential in order to understand our ecosystem.
What is SSI?
SSI is a protocol defined in the W3C.org for exchanging data in a decentralised way: it combines data and ownership into one single dataset, then signs the dataset by using digital signatures and then puts the content into an object called Verifiable Credential.
SSI is a standard and therefore is meant to be interoperable, as long as different providers implement the same rules defined in the W3C.org definitions.
What is a Verifiable Credential?
A Verifiable Credential, or VC, describes not only a set of data, but also contains its ownership through a signature. Similar to digital signatures, a VC can be verified at a later point and therefore trusted.
A VC can represent, for example: a payment method, a medical exam, a degree or certification, an email/password combination, and much more.
In SSI workflows, there are three main actors performing operations:
This is who creates a Verifiable Credential by signing its dataset.
The subject, a person, who owns the VC and keeps it in their storage area.
Who wants to use the data owned by the Holder, verifies its authenticity.
This concept is key to understanding our ecosystem: sideos is the infrastructure of the software as a service that provides the ability to store and retrieve decentralised data for Issuers, Holders, and Verifiers through the set of tools described below.
The issuance and verification gateway
Our infrastructure connects an organisation’s decentralised data to other data sources to verify that the data being requested is legitimate.
Only 2 API calls and you're ready to go!
It is the bi-directional service for issuing and verifying credentials, and can be integrated using 2 simple API calls.
The management console
The Juno Bridge is the management console that helps a team manage the interactions between their technical infrastructure and their users seamlessly, for a fraction of the cost.
An easy interface that serves as the bridge between your app and your users’ devices, it is where Issuers can customise the data contained in verifiable credentials based on their business requirements and needs, see the list of transactions, onboard other admins and much more.
Create credentials requests and offers
With Juno you an create credentials templates easily and start issuing them to be scanned or read by the the mobile (Transponder App) or desktop (Browser sideos Wallet) wallets.
The Transponder mobile app can be thought of as a real-life wallet: it stores many pieces of information - an ID, a discount code, a loyalty or credit card, a ticket or a document - and users present them whenever they need to be verified by a service, an organisation or such.
Creating a digital identity
With SSI technology, the digital identity of the Holder is created via cryptography in a personal device like mobile or computer, within a digital wallet where users manage their pieces of information held into Verifiable Credentials.
An alternative for non-mobile Users
Our browser extension is not only a fast way to test our solutions, but is also suitable for work environments where phones are not allowed.
