The Scottish identity specialist Condatis has offered its support to the Sovrin Foundation. Condatis focuses primarily on self-sovereign identity (SSI), and regularly advises governments and large enterprises on how they can use that technology to protect the privacy of their customers.
Signing on as a Steward of the Sovrin Foundation will advance that mission. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization that administers the decentralized Sovrin Network, which is designed to be an international internet utility. The blockchain-based platform seeks to provide individual citizens with secure digital IDs that cannot be revoked by any public or private organizations.
“I’m delighted that Condatis will be taking an active role in the future development of the Sovrin Network,” said Sovrin Foundation Chairman Sam Smith. “Their track record and expertise in implementing successful enterprise scale digital identity applications will serve our community well. We look forward to working together to bring SSI to their clients.”
“We are committed to providing secure, frictionless identity solutions,” added Condatis CEO Chris Tate. “Enabling people to become the owners and controllers of their data and build trust between citizens and governments is the core of what we do. Together with the Sovrin Foundation, we can help achieve the collective vision of identity for all.”
The Sovrin Foundation currently has more than 75 official Stewards. Condatis will join a list that already includes major identity providers like SITA and Veridium, who both signed on as Founding Stewards back in 2018. In May, SITA upped its commitment and became a Premium Donor in the hope that it will lead to the creation of a new identity framework for the air travel industry.
The Foundation itself recently entered into public trials for its own Sovrin Token cryptocurrency. The organization is hoping that the independent currency will reduce its reliance on third-party technology for financial transactions.
