As the world becomes more digitally connected between customers, enterprises and devices, a customer’s digital identity is the core of our digital interactions. We envision companies and governments can issue a digital identity that is interoperable and accepted by any type of requesting party’s technology through a new enterprise platform product. Moreover, customer profile attributes are shared with consideration of privacy by design as an attestation (i.e. binary yes/no response for over 21) without sharing the data itself.
What it does
- An application that allows a service provider to scan QR codes from users in order to verify any requirements they might have (ex. a bar checking if someone entering is of legal drinking age)
How we built it
- Made two frontends, one for the user with their unique QR code, one for the service provider to verify the qr code/user token and pull the specific information needed from the API.
- Developed HDQL ("HDQL Data Query Language") and a parser for it to make a simple secure language for developers to create their own specific queries (like to check if someone is either above age x or below age y, or any other possibly more specific query)
Challenges we ran into
- Developing the language & parser so that it is secure and functions as intended
- Whether or not to use html5 WebSockets
- Implementing QR code scanner (not enough time)
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Finishing developing the language & parser so that it is secure and functions as intended
What we learned
- How useful something like this digital identifier would be
What's next for SecurID?
- Continue developing prototype
