Q
Why Corda over another SSI implementation?
A

We believe Corda, as a private and permissioned DLT, offers a higher level of security and clear regulatory compliance for organisations. Owing to Corda’s permissioned design, no personal data will be written to the Corda ledger. This is different to implementations on Ethereum and Hyperledger which often allow public write access to the ledger.

Q
How do organisations deploy IDWorks Envoy and our SDK?
A

IDWorks have designed Envoy and the Sentry SDK to act as an overlay to legacy management system. IDWorks can work alongside current data management models or, if companies want to overhaul their current model, IDWorks can act as a replacement.

Q
Is Envoy GDPR compliant?
A

Yes. IDWorks has designed its solution to be GDPR compliant by design. IDWorks’ solution puts users in greater control of their personal data. This makes it easier for companies which also store customer data to facilitate the GDPR subject access rights, such as the right to access, right to data portability and the right to be forgotten.

Q
Does IDWorks have access to my identity?
A

No. IDWorks acts as a ‘mere conduit’ and is not a data controller nor a data processor. It has no technical way to view identity information issued as a credential to individuals.

Q
Does IDWorks store any identity information?
A

No. IDWorks is a B2B2C solution provider. This means that we sell our solutions to organisations who deploy them for their customers or users. Identity information is therefore only stored by organisations and individuals which use our SSI technology.

Q
Does IDWorks store any personally identifiable information (PII) on a distributed ledger or blockchain?
A

No. IDWorks has built its technology to specifically avoid PII on a distributed ledger or blockchain. All PII is stored on a user’s mobile device or in a company’s internal source system.
