This service enables users to create Self-Sovereign Identities, linking Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) to people, organizations, or devices. Each identity is represented by a unique public key immutably stored on the ledger. Identities and public keys are used to anchor off-chain verifiable credentials, which are certificates containing identity attributes signed by an Issuer identity (using its private key).
The Issuer itself is an entity with its own decentralized identity. The Bridge allows an identified trust root to verify users' identity. Verified identities can then propagate this verification to other entities (organizations, individuals, or objects) using a network of trust approach. Identity can be used with the Audit Trail Service or as stand-alone. The entire workflow is managed with simple REST APIs.
