Developer Resources

Identity management is evolving. In the future, organizations will accept the identities brought by users to each interaction. This requires a fundamental shift from the traditional centralized approach to a decentralized approach with trusted, verified credentials. 

And savvy developers will lead this transformation.

Evernym’s products help developers add the power of self-sovereign identities to their business processes. Solutions like Verity and Connect.Me make it easy to issue, hold, verify, and revoke identity credentials that implement W3C standards and leverage Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs).

When your team selects Evernym’s products, you get:

  • Access to a powerful API for customization
  • Integrations with legacy systems
  • Support from the world leaders in self-sovereign identity
  • Access to the source code for the licensed products under commercial terms

Hyperledger logoEvernym’s products are built on the open core of Hyperledger Indy. This community-governed codebase is available for anyone to study, use, and modify. The best place to start is with the getting started guide in the SDK Git repository.

The Indy community is very friendly, and developers can often get help from volunteers via chat or the mailing list. The documentation index for project Indy is a valuable developer resource as well.

Evernym’s products also leverage the Sovrin network. The network policies are available to interested developers, and there is also a valuable discussion forum and chat.

The inevitable return to self-sovereign identity (SSI)

The Inevitable Return to Self-Sovereign Identity

Today’s digital identity is idiotic. Compared to physical paper documents or credentials, our digital identities are forgettable, restrictive, and borderline useless. For all intents and purposes, when we go online “we the people” become meaningless identifiers, assigned for someone else’s convenience. With today’s digital identity, your data is locked in some organisation’s silo. All you...

Three Dimensions of Identity

The Three Models of Digital Identity Relationships

How self-sovereign identity (SSI) is different, and why it’s better. As a relative “noob” in the identity world — five years and counting — it may seem presumptuous for me to distill all the types of digital identity relationships into just three models. But it needs doing. Why? Because there’s a new kid on the identity block — “self-sovereign” identity (SSI) — that...
