Identity Verification Bridge

The identity verification bridge service is used to bridge existing third-party service providers like Jumio or Veriff onto the network and provide reusability of verified identities.

These service providers bridge an identity verification request from the network to the third-party service. Once verification is complete, they wrap the proof provided by the third-party service in a W3C verifiable credential, which is then returned to the user. The user, due to the nature of verifiable credentials, is then able to freely use this as proof of their identity and reuse this over and over.

The identity verification bridge does not store identity data. The third-party service provider may retain data for their maximum retention period after which the data will only exist on the user’s device.
