Verified identity decentralized with blockchain technology.
Civic’s Secure Identity Platform (SIP) uses a verified identity for multi-factor authentication on web and mobile apps without the need for usernames or passwords.
User authentication is a growing security threat that organizations face today. With identity theft and data breach numbers reaching new heights every year, businesses pay millions of dollars to ensure that the transactions on their servers are authentic. Hackers steal identities and impersonate valid customers, racking up thousands of dollars of fraudulent charges.
Authenticate without the need for traditional physical IDs, knowledge-based authentication, username/password, and two-factor hardware tokens. Here are some of the services and solutions we have launched with our Civic Business Customers, but many more are under development.
Through our decentralized architecture with the blockchain and biometrics on the mobile device, our platform provides multi-factor authentication without a username, password, third-party authenticator, or physical hardware token.
Keys are generated by a third-party wallet, providing a firewall between Civic and users’ keys
Identity data is fully encrypted in the app on the user’s device and can be accessed with biometrics
Public identifier for the authenticating authority, hashed identity data, and a flag indicating the data is still valid
New account creation can be simplified by providing verified identity data with the Civic app. While this service may sound similar to Facebook Login, Civic’s Secure Private Sign-up (SPS) and Secure Private Login (SPL) offers both privacy of data transactions and greater trust in user identity. By utilizing SPS, you can rest assured that new accounts are created by the true owner of the identity data. Civic’s SPL enables you to allow your users to log in to your web and mobile apps without a username or password. SPL provides a better user experience and multi-factor authentication without weak passwords, password reset vulnerabilities, and the hassle of legacy two-factor authentication.
Civic is another high-profile company working in this area, enabling users to share and manage their verified identity data via a blockchain.
As we release Hilo to a global audience, we want to have systems in place to verify the real identities of our users. Civic provides a way to authenticate all our community members with ease.

CapLinked is excited to be offering Civic as a seamless integration to our customers and to be working closely with Civic to develop innovative, secure identity verification products as we move forward with our blockchain project.
One of the many benefits of working with Civic is that their protocol actually allows for the verification of, for instance, high school diplomas and other certificates associated with user profiles.
Civic became the first company to turn identity theft protection into truly warning you before the identity theft truck hits you.
The bottom line is that Americans are not in control of when and where their personal information is being used and we plan to change that.
Civic uses the public blockchain. This means that Identity Requesters do not have to invest a large amount of money to set up the technology infrastructure to support the Civic Secure Identity Platform solution.
Identity data is revocable by the authenticating authority. For example, if a user changes their last name, then the former/invalid last name data is revoked on the blockchain by the authenticating authority.
Identity data is encrypted and stored in the Civic App on User mobile devices.
With third-party authenticated identity data, Civic cannot be compelled by a foreign government or criminal organization to invalidate identity data.
Users store and share their own identity anywhere in the world. Their data is accessible anywhere in the US, Europe, Africa, or Asia.
Civic uses the power of the blockchain to ensure the highest quality privacy and security for your business.
