Evolution of Digital Identities
The technology of identities evolved several times as digitalization moves forward. If we stop now the system will collapse.
Neither centralized, federated, nor user-centric identities held the key to secure, compliant, convenient digital identites.
An Identity Factor Federation guarantees a true future-proof solution to achieve verified self-sovereign identities for all parties involved: companies, institutions, partners, users as well as devices.
There is no open, flexible and customizable identity infrastructure.
All identity attributes of a person are stored multiple times and mostly not verified on different databases of different service providers. When a provider gets attacked, millions of identities are at risk.
Users cannot reuse or carry their attributes from one provider to the other. That’s why users have to verify attributes (e.g. driver’s license, bank account) over and over again.
Most digital accesses are ONLY protected by username and password. This leads to a massive lack of security and opens the door to identity theft.
THE SOLUTION: ONE COMMON INFRASTRUCTURE
One universal identity infrastructure for all authenticators and systems combined with a convenient SSO for the user.
Through Keyp’s SDK any service provider only needs to connect once and can continue using their existing system and their own individualized login button.
USER-CENTRIC & DECENTRAL
Identity factors are stored in the hardware encrypted Wallet (e.g. on the iPhone’s secure enclave) to maximize security and identity sovereignty
Third-party authenticators verify every single identity attribute (that’s how an attribute becomes a factor). Thus, each factor can be used for multiple authentications
Keyp is using multiple factors for every authentication. The service provider can choose an individual set of identity factors which protect their digital resources
Keyp: the future-proof identityOS
Keyp creates an infrastructure that enables a convenient, secure and flexible exchange of identity factors for all parties involved:
✔ Third party authenticators verify every single identity attribute (that’s how an attribute becomes a factor)
✔ Identity factors are stored in the hardware encrypted Wallet (e.g. on the iPhone’s secure enclave)
✔ 100% data sovereignty for the user
Keyp supports any authentication , industry standard or framework (e.g. SAML, OpenID Connect, AD/LDAP)
