Empower Users to Control Their Personal Information

For added security, 1Kosmos BlockID utilizes a private blockchain to decentralize data, eliminating administrative access to a centralized “honeypot” of information that hackers often target in data breach or ransomware attacks.

The data captured during the document verification process is managed through the citizen’s digital identity wallet. The data is encrypted and stored in a distributed ledger, accessible only via a FIDO2 certified private-public key pair secured in the TPM / Secure Enclave of a device and under the sole control of the user via their biometric. User identity can be secured across multiple devices, and since there is no centralized user store, a decentralized approach ensures there is no honey pot of personally identifiable information (PII Data) to secure against the threat of data breach.

1Kosmos BlockID wallet ensures users that all personal information is encrypted end-to-end and becomes readily available anywhere at any time upon user consent.

Modernize Identity Verification for Rapid Onboarding

Identity verification is only as sound as the credential used. 1Kosmos BlockID identity proofing technology captures the information in the credential and looks to ensure the document is valid. For instance, 1Kosmos BlockID checks for common characteristics of the document to identify if a photocopy was used.

1Kosmos technology fuses AI and machine learning to review over 2,000 unique computer vision data models to verify an ID’s authenticity. Additionally, our OCR technology can extract information from an ID and populate customer forms instantly. It can also read and compare the data on an ID’s NFC chip. This system reduces time and mistakes made during user onboarding.

In cases where a visual check of the data is required, 1Kosmos BlockID will work with third parties to validate the captured data and the ID document. Or, if organizations would prefer, 1Kosmos BlockID can activate an API to verify the data from the Country Signer Certificate Authority (CSCA) or from an issuing authority such as AAMVA for US drivers licenses, to validate the document and the data.
