Getting Started with Sovrin

Behind the Sovrin Foundation is a codebase precisely designed to enable true digital self-sovereign identity (SSI). In accordance with the decentralized nature of blockchain technology, this codebase is open source and receives contribution from people all around the world.

The Sovrin Foundation is a member of Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation Project. The Sovrin Foundation uses Hyperledger Indy as the codebase for the Sovrin Network and contributed the initial Indy code for the project.

As one of the open source projects under the Hyperledger umbrella, Hyperledger Indy is made up of several individual, yet connected repositories, providing tools, libraries and reusable components for providing digital identities rooted on blockchains or other distributed ledgers so that they are interoperable across administrative domains, applications and any other silo.
