Verifiable Organizations Network
Homeland Security

The Verifiable Organizations Network

A joint effort between the Canadian Provinces of British Columbia and Ontario, the Verifiable Organizations Network (VON) was launched to improve the way governments and their citizens find, issue, store and share trustworthy data about organizations—locally and around the globe.

The program’s first services, OrgBook BC and Ontario’s Verifiable Businesses, are already in production, leveraging Sovrin, Hyperledger Indy, and Evernym.

The Alberta Credentials Exchange

Evernym is proud to work with ATB Financial and the Canadian cities of Edmonton and Calgary to organize the Alberta Credentials Ecosystem, the world’s first truly decentralized, multi-sector credential ecosystem. The initiative brings together governments, universities, and businesses across the Province of Alberta under the mission of bringing self-sovereign identity to all Albertans.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) contracted Evernym to develop a Decentralized Key Management System (DKMS), or an easy-to-use, decentralized mechanism for managing public and private keys needed for the secure and scalable deployment of blockchain technologies. The code has since been made open-source through Hyperledger Aries.

In the original announcement, Anil John of the DHS’s Science & Technology Directorate commented: “Managing public and private cryptographic keys in existing public key infrastructure as well as permissioned and permission-less blockchains continues to be a difficult challenge. Through this project, Evernym will push the limits of the emerging decentralized key management system technology to deliver a high level of comfort to the public and American businesses as they integrate blockchain technologies into their technology portfolio.”
