US Patents

Electronic Identity and Credentialing System, #9646150, May 9, 2017.

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.

Methods for Using Digital Seals for Non-Repudiation of Attestations, #9900309, Feb. 20, 2018.

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.

Systems and Methods for Registering and Acquiring E-Credentials using Proof of Existence and Digital Seals, #10127378, Nov. 13, 2018.

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.

Architecture & Methods for Self-Sovereign Digital Identity, #10756906, Aug 25, 2020.

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.

Methods for Identity-Proofing, Attestation and Replacing Passwords with Digital Identities, submitted Aug. 25,2020.

Specifies methods for proofing and attesting digital identities and using digital identities to authenticate a web user when accessing web services.
