Melbourne, Australia, November 1st, 2023, Chainwire
ShareRing, an actual self-sovereign digital identity blockchain Australian company, proudly announces its achievement as one of the first in the industry to be accredited under the "Digital Identities and Attributes Trust Framework" (DIATF) in the United Kingdom. This accomplishment marks a significant advancement in ShareRing's technology and reaffirms the company's commitment to reusable digital identity authentication in a secure and private environment.
By securing the accreditation, ShareRing can now offer its digital identity solution for digital ID authentication, with the addition of ID verification for land registry purposes in the UK.
ShareRing's digital identity technology gives businesses an end-to-end solution to prove their customers' identities across many different industries, whether for financial KYC and customer due diligence (CDD), age and ID verification, venue and guest management, or corporate identity management. Businesses would manage their digital identity needs through a web-based platform, while their customers create and control their reusable digital ID through the Identifi Me app, where they have complete sovereignty over their personal information.
UK government authorities oversee the DIATF, and it is a comprehensive framework for establishing trusted and secure digital identity ecosystems. It defines robust standards, principles, and requirements that accredited companies, like ShareRing, must meet to guarantee the integrity, privacy, and reliability of user data while minimizing the risk of identity fraud and cyber threats.
"Digital identities are pivotal to removing friction from our everyday lives, and drastically improve operational efficiency across all businesses," said Tim Bos, Founder of ShareRing. "The UK leads the way in digital ID regulation, and with the accreditation, ShareRing can confidently partner with public and private sectors in Australia and the UK."
ShareRing's self-sovereign identity solution is built with blockchain technology (Tendermint PoS and Cosmos SDK) and establishes a tamper-proof ecosystem for businesses and individuals. Unlike traditional identity systems vulnerable to breaches and fraud, ShareRing's solution ensures that personal data is verified and remains under the user's control, only shared with third parties when necessary and with explicit consent. Over the past year, ShareRing has partnered with multiple private sector businesses in Australia and overseas, replacing conventional KYC and customer authentication processes with reusable digital identities. ShareRing will continue establishing partnerships with Australian and UK investment funds, nightlife and F&B venues, and hotels to help safeguard these businesses from identity fraud while improving operational processes and lowering costs.
