Build Verifiable Credential Solutions

Build and manage verifiable credential solutions, from identity wallets to trusted ecosystems with the TrustBloc technology platform. Based on W3C standards and interoperable with other existing W3C compliant verifiable credential networks. 

TrustBloc and Verifiable Credentials

TrustBloc simplifies sharing data between decentralized identity solutions for organizations whose users want more control over their verifiable credentials.

TrustBloc will:

  • Issue and accept verifiable credentials from your users
  • Deploy a production-ready digital identity ecosystem
  • Give your users more control over their verifiable credentials
  • Streamline your digital identity workflows

What is a Verifiable Credential?

Verifiable credentials are the digital equivalent of physical credentials like passports, driver’s licenses, qualifications and vaccination records. Unlike physical credentials, they are secure, tamperproof, and put the owner of the verifiable credential in control of their digital identity.

What is Orb?

Orb takes decentralized identifiers to another level of scalability and interoperability by providing organizations decentralized trust without the reliance on a common blockchain. By extending the Sidetree protocol, Orb enables organizations to connect to a network-of-networks of trusted registries that are interconnected, scalable and resilient across the evolving ecosystems of decentralized identity.

    Case Studies

    User-Centric Verifiable Digital Credentials

    As part of the Innovative Solutions Canada program, the Government of Canada invited businesses to offer portable secure digital credentials (self-sovereign identity) solutions for individuals that could be independently, cryptographically and rapidly verified using emerging distributed ledger standards. The original request for this stated that a successful solution to this challenge will help reduce human error, increase efficiency and ensure digital credential validity. The proposed approach also required scalability that could give rise to a global digital verification platform.

    SecureKey successfully answered with the TrustBloc platform. The ability to support multiple credential sources used in a single transaction, enable real-time and stored claims, as well as implement and integrate open/standard APIs and data models will allow increased interoperability with the solutions of other participating vendors. We look forward to continuing our work with the Government of Canada to keep improving Canada’s digital ecosystem.

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP)

    The DHS’ Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) selected five organizations, including SecureKey, to help continue its efforts in using blockchain and distributed ledger technology to modernize operations. SecureKey is currently working to develop an alternative identifier for the Social Security Number to support the DHS Privacy Office’s SSN Collection and Use Reduction initiative. This will help the DHS implement a globally unique and verifiable identifier that will not divulge personally identifiable information (PII) or enable cross tracking.

    Anil John, SVIP Technical Director of the DHS, complemented SecureKey’s work with the government department by stating it and other selected organizations, “… demonstrated a firm commitment to technical interoperability using global standards from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and provided concrete plans to commercialize their final solutions.”
