Take back the control of your personal data by issuing identities for yourself
First step towards true privacy for your digital persona
Synergy of OAuth and Decentralised Ledger Technology allow you to issue your own identity
SIOP - DID Profile is a way to issue a Digital Identity without depending on any third party (such as Google or Facebook). It provides you the convenience of accessing services without creating separate accounts. Since you are the identity provider, you do not share any personal data with anyone
In simple terms, this is a way to avoid relying on social login schemes (such as Facebook or Google Login) to access various online platform, but enjoy the same convenience provided by such login services. Instead of an enterprise providing an Identity on behalf of a user, user himself/herself become the identity claim provider. This means, the user will not share his/her personal information with any external party. Hence, the user could decide what information will be shared with whom and when.
Specifications for Self Issued OpenID Connect Provider (SIOP) is a part of OAuth 2.0 and complies OpenID Connect Core 1.0 which are the underlying protocols for all popular social login schemes. This guarantees the dataflows and user journeys remain the same compared to what users are using today.
As name suggests, DID SIOP rely on Decentralised Identities (DIDs) which is a way of creating and managing identities without an authoritative entity. DIDs are backed by Decentralised Ledger Technology (DLTs), and provide means for Authentication and Authorization of entities in a trusted manner using Cryptography.
