Electronic Identity and Credentialing System (May 9/17)
An electronic credentialing system that enables personal devices to interoperate where each device has an installed identity engine [identity agent] that acquires, holds, issues and uses electronic identities.
Enables a person having a personal device and electronic identities to create a digital seal that affixes the owner’s identity and attestation to an electronic artifact such as a transaction, document or identity.
Combining the digital sealing method with a proof-of-existence method, digital identities can be registered which relying parties can verify to ensure they were registered by the owner or an attesting owner.
The US Patent and Trademark Office recently granted and published this patent specifying methods for verifying, validating and exchanging self-sovereign identities and using them to delegate consent to access private data.
