Decentralized Identity: A Checklist for First-Time Buyers!

We compiled a checklist of essential information you need to know to make your evaluation process easier: is it the right fit for you? Build or buy? Common Pricing? What type of wallet to pick? And more!

The Web Wallet's Architecture

This guide explains the flow of issuance and verification of Verifiable Credentials using Tykn’s REST API.

Verifiable Credentials

Verifiable Credentials, in essence, allow for the digital watermarking of claims data through a combination of public key cryptography and privacy-preserving techniques to prevent correlation.

Self-Sovereign Identity

The emergence of Blockchain technology, Decentralized Identifiers and Verifiable Credentials allowed the creation of a third model of identity: Self-Sovereign Identity.

Identity Management with Blockchain

A distributed ledger (a “blockchain”) enables everyone in the network to have the same source of truth about which credentials are valid and who attested to the validity of the data inside the credential, without revealing the actual data.

Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs)

Decentralized Identifiers are globally, unique and persistent identifiers and their decentralized nature makes credentials always available for verification.
