uPort

Decentralized Identity for All

Basic facts

Uport addresses a number of public blockchain usability problems, such as private key management, through a blockchain based identity protocol that can be easily incorporated in other projects, allowing for a persistent identity across projects with means of identity recovery if, say, the phone is lost. Moreover, official institutions, such as, say, the Passport Office, and others, can vouch for the correctness of an identity, making possible the signing of contracts through an ethereum public key.

Why Blockchain?

Open-source Ethereum Identity System: uPort is a mobile, self-sovereign identity and key management system, built on the Ethereum blockchain. Our flexible technology was built with both developers and users in mind. It consists of an easy-to-use mobile app, Ethereum smart contracts, and open-source libraries. Businesses can accept uPort identities with only five lines of code, while users can easily access and curate their self-soverign identities on the app. We use standards built in collaboration with other large leading organizations, such as Microsoft, and support disruptive technologies like IPFS and Ethereum.
