Hyperledger Indy


Hyperledger Indy is a Hyperledger Project for supporting independent identity on Distributed Ledger Technology and part of the Linux Foundation

Hyperledger Indy is used by the Sovrin Foundation

Hyperledger Indy provides accessible provenance for trust to support user-controlled exchange of Verifiable Claims about an identifier.

Hyperledger Indy also has a rock-solid revocation model for cases where those claims are no longer true. Verifiable Claims are a key component of Hyperledger Indy’s ability to serve as a universal platform for exchanging trustworthy claims about transactions. Provenance is the foundation of accountability through recourse.

Another vital feature of Decentralized Identifier entity & ??;especially for a public ledger—is privacy. Privacy by Design is baked deep into Hyperledger Indy architecture as reflected by three fundamental features:

Hyperledger Indy is all about giving identity owners independent control of their personal data and relationships. Hyperledger Indy is built so that the owner of the Digital Identity is structurally part of transactions made about that identity. Pairwise Pseudonymous Identifiers stop third parties from talking behind the identity owner’s back, since the identity owner is the only place Pairwise Pseudonymous Identifiers can be correlated.


Indy is an Abbreviation for Independent Identity
