      The novel concept is to add a quantized face that is still human-verifiable to the digital credential presentation. The hash of the quantized face, but not the face itself, would be signed and verifiable as part of the digital credential represented by the QR code.



  • Imageware to add Biometrics to Blockchain Powered Self Sovereign Identity (SSI) 2021-10-24 “As individual safety and privacy concerns become more prevalent in our daily lives, it’s vital that we have better, more decentralized methods of giving individuals autonomy over their identities. By joining the Decentralized Identity Foundation and Trust Over IP groups, we’ll be able to leverage their network and resources in our efforts to further develop a portfolio of SSI integrated biometric solutions.”


  • Biometrics come to verifiable credentials with Applied Recognition and Sovrin Foundation 2021-05 Biometric Update

    Making wallet available, with support from companies like Applied Rec supplying biometrics that people can use for free, therefore extends Sovrin’s mission of supporting SSI. The companies generous enough to donate their technology to the wallet get commercial upside from next steps of service for banks and other organizations leveraging the open-source wallet, Raczkowski says.
