Lab Name

Cordentity

Short Description

The Cordentity app integrates Indy capabilities into the Corda platform.

While Corda is designed for developing decentralized applications to manage complex inter-organizational workflows, Indy is the leading open-source platform for self sovereign identity. This integration enables the development of decentralized applications on R3’s blockchain for business while utilizing the self-sovereign identity capabilities of Indy.

Scope of Lab

Cordentity is a self-contained CorDapp that integrates Hyperledger Indy, for decentralized identity, with the R3 Corda Platform. This lab creates interoperability of two purpose-built ledger technologies, each with a focus on privacy. Corda is designed to enable private transact and Indy is a ledger built specifically for self-sovereign identity. The integrated platforms reinforce each other and allows building complicated scenarios.

It is often required to prove identity assertions without necessarily wanting to reveal the underlying data. For example, an individual may need to prove that they are of a certain age without wanting to disclose their actual date of birth. Hyperledger Indy uses zero knowledge proofs to enable this functionality, allowing someone prove a statement is true while preserving confidentiality.
