DID-IMP

DID-IMP is leveraging blockchain technologies to remove the need for a classical hierarchical structure with players like the Certificate Authority (CA) and the Registration Authority (RA). We replace these administrator-like trusted third parties (RA & CA) with a feeless blockchain smart contract. The blockchain is also used as a Certificate Store on which services providers can issue and manage revocable certificates and credentials. Such a lean architecture is especially well adapted for Internet of Things (IoT) Secure Automatic Data Sharing SADS. Indeed, SADS can be used in various ways to simplify and streamline data sharing processes, and to secure and trace data transfers. Some of the main use cases include connected cars, remote healthcare, cognitive cities or energy management. In a nutshell, we build a Trust Chain for IoT secure data sharing, bringing better traceability to data, securing their flow and allowing companies to reduce administrative overhead, save time and money, and offer a better protected data sharing experience for final customers. Indeed, users can retain ownership and control over their IoT data while granting access to specific parties through permissioned credentials. Additionally, our SADS-enabled solution can help to manage the flow of sensitive data and the compliance to the new European and Global regulations, thanks to the native traceability features provided by blockchain technologies combined with the process proposed by this DID-IMP project, which implies a traced blockchain transaction for each data transfer, also tracking the main regulatory characteristics of the data exchanged.
