Since day one, the LACChain Alliance has worked to enable an identity layer on top of the LACChain Networks to allow solutions to leverage it to establish secure and privacy-preserving solutions for end-users. As part of this work, the LACChain Alliance published a book introducing Self-Sovereign Identity and the LACChain ID Framework. In this documentation you will find several open-source resources that will allow you to:
These resources are meant to allow developers to easy develop and integrate with the LACChain Networks all kind of interfaces for issuers, subjects, and verifiers of digital credentials and assets.
Self-sovereign identity is a user centric identity approach based on the idea that individuals can manage and present their digital assets using digital wallets, so their can share and exchange them with security assurance and privacy maximization. Our book presents the evolution of identity schemes, the potential of SSI for social and financial inclusion, the road to adoption, and the three layers necessary for its accomplishment: technology, regulation, and trust frameworks.
The LACChain ID Framework is a set of recommendations to build multipurpose, scalable, interoperable, secure, and privacy-preserving digital credentials and wallets. It covers the topics of decentralized identifiers, verifiable credentials and presentations, digital wallets, on-chain public key directories, trusted lists, certificate revocation lists, regulation, and trust frameworks.
