Spherity announces that it has become a partner of the IDunion project. The project is funded within the innovation framework “Showcase secure digital identities” of the German government (Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy). Spherity is entrusted on the application of cloud identity technology in the healthcare industry.
Currently, over 40 applications have been implemented in the IDunion project. These are used in a wide variety of sectors, such as public administration, the financial sector, IoT and industry, the healthcare sector, mobility sector and e-commerce. The technology has now exited the research phase and will appear in the first productive applications in 2021.

What use cases should a National Digital Identity program prioritize in collaboration with the private sector? As use cases become verticals of their own, what are then some of the horizontal considerations that need to be applied to enable all of the use cases to function within their relative ecosystems?
Self Sovereign Identity (SSI) provides the technical building blocks to create decentralized data-driven systems, which bring data autonomy back to the users. In this paper we propose a system in which the combination of SSI and token economy based incentivisation strategies makes it possible to unlock the potential value of data-pools without compromising the data autonomy of the users.
We are convinced this demonstrated user flow can help to better understand the interactions in a digital identity ecosystem such as IDunion. […] The Lissi team is in discussion with trust service providers, authorities, municipalities, agencies, associations and other relevant stakeholders to meet all the necessary requirements and provide you with the best user experience.
