Safe digital credentials that citizens will actually use
It’s 2021 and most government-related cards, like IDs and driver’s licenses, are paper-based. That all changes with verifiable credentials.
There are good reasons why, despite all the technological advancement that is commonplace in 2021, most of the world has no digital government ID or other important certificates. Overcoming privacy, security, and interoperability concerns are challenging. But without truly digital credentials, citizens are left taking pictures of important documents to prove their identity online, which is unsafe and inconvenient. Different systems don’t work together, and millions of hours are wasted on paper-based processes.
Verifiable credentials offer a tamper-proof, privacy-first, interoperable solution for digital government documents, such as driver’s licenses, passports, business licenses, etc. Traditional issuers of documents can save time and money by going digital, while empowering citizens with a digital identity backed by a trusted institution. With Trinsic, you can protect citizens from phishing by restricting with whom and how data is shared. Others in your ecosystem, like other departments or partners, can easily authorize people based on the credentials you issue.
“We look forward to continue to pilot the use of blockchain with Trinsic for the benefit of the business community in Los Angeles and beyond as we prepare for the future.”
