Evernym discusses upgrades for verifiable digital credential platform
Since it was launched in 2018, Verity, Evernym’s verifiable digital credential platform for self-sovereign identity (SSI), has been chosen by multiple customers in varying industries, ranging from financial services to healthcare, with use for both consumers and employees, the company wrote in a blog post. The system has enabled decentralized identity projects for more than 100 customers around the world, especially lately when the pandemic increased the need for touchless identity verification.
Evernym has leveraged customer feedback to update the toolkit while delivering support and scalable performance. In June, the company released Verity 2.0., an upgraded version with 50 new features, available for free through Sandbox Plan.
Verity 2.0 is optimized for Hyperledger Indy and Aries, and it manages the trusted and verifiable information exchange related to DIDComm connections, issuing credentials, validating proofs, and exchanging secure messages. Evernym explains companies can use trusted data for passwordless single sign-on (SSO), remote user and new account onboarding, cross-domain authentication, KYC and AML checks, personalized customer communication, pre-employment screening, supply chain integrity, open-loop loyalty campaigns, data breach mitigation and automation of clerical tasks.
Verity’s clustered server architecture is built with Akka for scalability and elasticity. Considering workflows are transferred to the cloud, Verity is available as a managed service hosted in the same cloud infrastructure as the backend for Connect.Me. Verity was developed for digital credential-developers and supports both private cloud and on-premises deployments.
Developer tools available include open-source native language SDKs (Java, Python, Node), a full REST API, a getting started tutorial, working code for example apps (Java, Python, Node, REST), API reference (Java, Python, Node, REST), platform-specific installation repositories (Java, Python, Node) and Dockerfiles for rapid deployment.
Evernym says Verity and Connect.Me work seamlessly with IBM and Trinsic products, and are compliant with Aries Interoperability Profile 1.0.
Interested parties can register for a Verity-themed webinar on September 8.
In August, Evernym added facial biometrics and Genuine Presence Assurance from iProov to its enterprise-grade self-sovereign identity (SSI) platform and consumer mobile app to simplify onboarding and device binding for personal identity management.
