IDunion is a European network that brings together public institutions, government agencies, private companies, associations, educational institutions and other players from various industries. Its goal is to develop a fundamentally new, secure digital infrastructure for the verification of identity data.
Building a Decentralized Network within the European Legal Framework
Within this network, various solutions (use cases) are being developed and elaborated with which private as well as legal entities are to be given the opportunity to share identity information on an individual, trust-based basis. For this purpose, partners jointly operate a distributed ledger, which will be managed by a European cooperative in the future.
Being one of 16 consortium partners in the IDunion project, Spherity does not only contribute its knowledge and expertise in cloud identity technology and in the healthcare industry but also as an operator of one of currently 15 nodes. Thereby the IDunion DLT test network is created, which is being build to act within the European legal framework (GDPR and eIDAS).
