Ready for a new era of identity?To solve some of the fundamental privacy and security issues in today's digital world, a paradigm shift from centralized identity management to a user-centric model needs to happen. Is your business ready?

Where traditional identity systems have failed

Identity management has evolved from paper file folders to siloed or somewhat connected IAM systems product or service vendors centrally run. One thing hasn't changed much is each vendor still has to request same or similar information their users have input again and again whenever they need to access a new offering and then authenticate if the information provided is true and valid.

If users are repeating themselves and vendors repeating what others have already done, isn't that a huge waste of resources?


The power of verifiable credentials

Self-sovereign identity (SSI) is the much needed paradigm shift that allows individuals or organizations to have ownership of their digital and analog identities, and control over how their personal data is shared and used.

With SSI, users would come with information validated and stored in verifiable credentials issued by trusted parties and readily to be taken by vendors with instant authentication. Decentralization makes verifiable credentials possible.

We have a whole package ready for you

SSI transactions mainly take place between individuals and organizations . While they are doing similar things, they have different authorities and requirements for how they accomplish them.

Northern Block has a suite of solutions that enable organizations to issue and verify credentials as a part of a trusted network (cloud agent/wallet) and their users to manage credentials and relationships with organizations (edge agent/wallet).

With our solutions, you will be able to achieve:
Passwordless login
Instant user onboarding
Credential-based authorization
Automated user data update
