全球法律实体标识基金会正与自主身份公司合作,使企业能在区块链上使用数字身份

2020-5-13 17:24

 

今天,全球法律实体标识基金会(GLEIF)表示,它正在与自主身份认证公司Evernym合作,使企业能够在区块链上使用数字身份。这两家公司正在试验一种名为“组织钱包”(organization purse)的解决方案,这种钱包可以保存组织的数字证书,并验证员工代表组织行事的权威。


GLEIF由金融稳定委员会(Financial Stability Board)于2014年成立,其任务是执行法人标识符(LEI),这是参与金融交易的公司和组织的全球标识符。基于区块链的解决方案使用组织钱包和可验证凭证将员工姓名连接到组织的LEI。


这种基于区块链的身份管理系统提高了业务流程的可信度,因此,当员工与新供应商签订合同或向监管机构提交信息时,他们就获得了授权。


GLEIF和Evernym在Sovrin网络上运行了一个概念验证(PoC),用于提交监管文件和杠杆式可验证凭证。作为一个全球性的基金会,GLEIF在Sovrin网络上注册了自己的公共分散标识符(DID)。有几个LEI发行者(通常是金融交易所)发行和维护这些标识符。格莱夫对每一家发行人都进行了认证。


组织由发布方验证并分配一个LEI。


对于PoC,组织从发布方请求其LEI的可验证凭证,并使用该数据向其员工发出可验证凭证。这些凭证存储在“组织钱包”中。


“通过与Evernym合作,我们首次将自我主权的概念从个人扩展到了法律实体,”GLEIF首席执行官斯蒂芬•沃尔夫(Stephan Wolf)表示。“以密码方式记录凭证的过程,与组织的LEI链接在基于分布式账本技术的信任链中,使组织能够完全控制自己员工的数字凭证的发布和管理,”


格莱夫此前曾在以太坊和超账本区块链上为LEIs测试过区块链数字身份。Sovrin网络最初是由Evernym公司发起的,基于Indy超级账本。


在其最近的项目中,Evernym参与了COVID凭据计划。它是IP信任指导委员会(ToIP)基金会的成员,该基金会是Linux基金会发起的一项标准倡议。


去年,不列颠哥伦比亚省(BC)、安大略省和加拿大政府联合探索了使用Hyperledger Indy为企业分散身份和可信凭证。这个解决方案被称为可验证组织网络(VON)。

 

Today, The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) said it is working with self-sovereign identity firm Evernym to enable organizations to use digital identity on the blockchain. The two are piloting a solution for ‘organization wallets,’ which would hold digital credentials of an organization and verify the authority of employees to act on its behalf.

GLEIF, established in 2014 by the Financial Stability Board, is tasked with implementing legal entity identifiers (LEI), a global identifier for companies and organizations participating in financial transactions. The blockchain-based solution uses the organization wallet and verifiable credentials to connect an employee’s name to the organization’s LEI.

This blockchain-based identity management system improves the trustworthiness of a business process, so it’s known that an employee is authorized when they sign a contract with new suppliers, or submit information to regulators.

GLEIF and Evernym ran a proof-of-concept (PoC) for a regulatory filing and leveraged verifiable credentials on the Sovrin Network. As a global foundation, GLEIF registered its own public Decentralized Identifier (DID) on the Sovrin Network. There are several LEI Issuers, typically financial exchanges, that issue and maintain these identifiers. GLEIF accredits each of these issuers.

An organization is validated by the Issuer and assigned an LEI.

For the PoC, an organization requested verifiable credentials with its LEI from the Issuer and used that data to issue verifiable credentials for its employees. These credentials were stored in the ‘organization wallet’.

“By partnering with Evernym, we have extended the idea of self-sovereign identity beyond individuals to legal entities for the first time,” said Stephan Wolf, CEO of GLEIF. “The process of cryptographically recording credentials, linked to an organization’s LEI in a chain of trust rooted on distributed ledger technology, gives organizations full control over the issuance and management of their own employee’s digital credentials,”

GLEIF has previously trialed blockchain digital identity for LEIs on Ethereum and Hyperledger blockchains. The Sovrin Network, originally initiated by Evernym, is based on Hyperledger Indy.

Among its recent projects, Evernym is participating in the COVID Credentials Initiative. It is on the steering committee of Trust over IP (ToIP) Foundation, a standards initiative of the Linux Foundation.

Last year, the governments of British Columbia (BC), Ontario and Canada jointly explored decentralized identity and trusted credentials for businesses using Hyperledger Indy. The solution is called Verifiable Organizations Network (VON).
