Control Your Digital Identity
Personally manage your digital IDs online with
the Sovrin Network – an open source project creating
a global public utility for self-sovereign identity
The Sovrin Solution
It’s time to evolve the current system of siloed identities, endless passwords, and insecure databases. The time is here for the frictionless, secure identity verification of self-sovereign identity.
The Sovrin Network is the new standard for digital identity – designed to bring the trust, personal control, and ease-of-use of analog IDs – like driver’s licenses and ID cards – to the Internet.
We’ve designed Sovrin as a metasystem for any application to use, giving people, organizations, and things the freedom to prove things about themselves using trustworthy, verifiable digital credentials.
“Self-sovereign” means the individual identity holder controls their credentials, using them whenever and however they please, without being forced to request permission of an intermediary.Read The Whitepaper

Promoting Banking for All—Announcing the Compliance & Inclusive Finance Working Group (CIFWG)
February 9, 2021
The current system of identity on the internet is an untrustworthy, dangerous system of honeypots and siloed data creating massive friction for the average customer. The Sovrin Network is a secure and agile metasystem enabling people, organizations or IoT devices to prove things about themselves to anyone or anything, peer-to-peer, using data that the other party can automatically cryptographically verify as being true.FinTech Use Case
Using the latest identity technology standards called Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs), the Sovrin Network allows for digital credentials to be privately issued, controlled, managed, and shared using a security standard called Zero Knowledge Proofs (ZKPs). The growth of the Sovrin Network partly depends on contributions from an active and supportive open source development community.Learn More About ZKPs
