Verite is free and open for anyone to use and build upon
Verite is an open-source framework for proving identity claims in Web3 without exposing sensitive personal information. Web apps, mobile apps and smart contracts get the benefit of identity-verified participants from the simple check of a Verite credential.
Portable identity controlVerite credentials are stored securely in a crypto wallet, just like digital assets. Individuals and entities gain direct control over how, when and where their identity attributes are shared. No personally identifiable data is sent or stored on-chain.
Composable and interoperableDevelopers can build on Verite with composable tooling for credential issuance, custody and verification. Create portable, privacy-preserving solutions for KYC, credit scoring, accreditation and more to empower institutions to confidently access DeFi.
Trusted and decentralizedThe Centre Consortium developed Verite in collaboration with Circle and alongside trusted industry leaders like Coinbase and Block. As a set of open-source protocols, Verite is decentralized with no single entity having authority over usage or development.
How Verite works
Users (individuals or entities) can request identity credentials from Issuers.
Issuers provide identity credentials back to Users, which are easily stored in a User’s crypto wallet, just like digital assets.
Users can present their identity credentials to Verifiers (web apps, mobile apps, smart contracts) to obtain access to their services.
