EBSI - Individual - Digital identity
Secure identity verification refers to the process of verifying the identity of individuals or organizations in a secure and efficient manner. In the context of EBSI, secure identity verification involves the use of decentralized identity technologies, such as blockchain and self-sovereign identity (SSI), to store and manage identity information in a secure and verifiable way. This enables individuals and organizations to control their own identity data and share it with others only when necessary, while also reducing the risk of identity theft and fraud.
- With secure identity verification on EBSI, citizens can easily and securely access a wide range of government services, such as applying for a passport, accessing tax information, or registering to vote. By using their EBSI-verified identity, citizens can save time and effort compared to traditional methods, as they no longer need to provide paper-based proof of identity.
- In many cases, individuals are required to share personal information, such as their name, address, and date of birth, with a variety of organizations. With secure identity verification on EBSI, individuals can control the sharing of their personal information, ensuring that only authorized parties have access to it. This can help to reduce the risk of identity theft and fraud, while also improving the privacy and security of personal information.
