Digi-ID is a security protocol built on DigiByte blockchain technology that empowers users to effortlessly sign-in to websites, applications, and even into the internet of things – building entrances, for example.
Digi-ID eliminates the often frustrating username and password requirements for authentication.
With Digi-ID, the hassle of keeping track of various usernames and passwords is a thing of the past. Digi-ID works by automatically generating a unique DigiByte address for each site, application, or product for which a user needs authentication. Because Digi-ID uses public / private key cryptography, there are no passwords or usernames at risk.
This method not only protects the consumer, it also protects the website or services that the consumer uses. Even with otherwise outstanding security, should a consumer re-use credentials from another vulnerable site, that consumer puts other users’ data at risk.
Digi-ID eliminates all of these security issues.
Digi-ID does not collect or store any data about its users. This means there is no liability from using a third-party “identity” service, nor will the website or application inadvertently collect any data from a user unless the service explicitly asks for it.
This further strengthens the security while also bolstering end-users’ confidence that their data is neither tracked nor at risk by others’ negligence.
With Digi-ID, there are no central servers storing personal information. Through true decentralization, there is not external point of failure for a hacker to target to exploit your platform.
Further, because Digi-ID does not save any data to the blockchain, none of a user’s data is at risk of being hacked or stolen.
Digi-ID is completely free; there are no fees, subscription services, or maintenance costs. There is no advertising or tracking. Digi-ID’s cost is its second best feature.
Its primary feature is that, in accordance with DigiByte’s security prioritization, Digi-ID is a more secure, yet simple method available to log in to websites, applications, and products.
Digi-ID is so versatile, it can be used to secure the front door to your house. Since it is built on DigiByte blockchain technology, Digi-ID is anonymous and allows for unlimited scalability while promoting GDPR compliance.
