Strengthening Government’s ability to protect citizen identity health

Governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) use digital identities to provide a variety of citizen services and eliminate certificate forgery and identity theft. However, the challenge for governments is that despite the growing reliance on digital identification there exist very real threats when it comes to the protection of and validity of citizen identification.

Last year, identity theft and fraud cost Australian consumers $AUD 6 billion.

How BAF helps?

What if a person’s digital identity could be secured in a way that prevented it from being tampered with or used in an unsanctioned way? Blockchain makes this possible. If the identifying information is placed on a permissioned blockchain framework, authorized parties will have access to one version of the truth, and only known participants can verify transactions and ensure records are valid. 

The solution is a new digital identity management and attribute sharing network. The network will allow individual consumers to control what information they share, while organizations can efficiently validate a customer’s identity and arrange which new services are required for that individual. By reducing redundant verification processes and the amount of paperwork needed to execute them, there would be fewer vulnerabilities for criminals to exploit. 

REDUCED FRAUD

SECURED RECORDS
