SecureKey is a leading identity and authentication provider that simplifies consumer access to online services and applications. SecureKey’s next generation privacy-enhancing services enable consumers to conveniently and privately assert identity information using trusted providers, such as banks, telcos and governments, helping them connect to critical online services with a digital credential they already have and trust, while ensuring that information is only ever shared with explicit user consent. SecureKey is a champion of the ecosystem approach to identity, revolutionizing the way consumers and organizations approach identity and attribute sharing in the digital age.

We live in a digital world, but are being forced to use outdated and broken identity systems, with too many avenues that welcome the possibility of fraud. Utilizing cutting-edge technologies like blockchain, and through collaboration with innovators like IBM and leaders like Canada’s major banks, SecureKey allows consumers to use trusted credential providers, such as financial institutions, telecom network operators and governments, to securely and privately authenticate with, and assert their identities for accessing, the services of participating organizations.

Organizations such as the Digital ID Authentication Council of Canada, the Command Control and Interoperability Center for Advanced Data Analytics (CCICADA), and many of Canada’s leading financial institutions (BMO, CIBC, Desjardins, RBC, Scotiabank and TD) have been engaged as both investors and partners in the development of this digital identity ecosystem. This unique collaboration will ensure the effective delivery of the new innovation, and improved privacy, security and digital fraud protection for both consumers and service providers across Canada.
