WISeKey explained how Avatar identities will allow us to navigate the metaverse using its WISeID technology by delegating our presence on the metaverse to authenticated versions of ourselves created via machine learning that would navigate and perform all kinds of transactions in our name.
First-generation WISeID acted as a trusted identity service that provides access to web and mobile applications with strong authentication techniques. WISeID supports online KYC onboarding, OTP and digital certificate login, as well as an innovative “hands-free” secure login based on QR codes that users can read using the software suite. WISeID mobile applications without even having to enter a password.
Additional security services include digital signature services for documents. WISeID implements standards such as OpenID Connect and OAUTH2, which can be easily integrated by customers to improve the security of their cloud applications. WISeID can also be combined with Microsoft Active Directory, facilitating integration with enterprise applications.
WISeID second generation digital identities in the metaverse include an in-protocol identification module, while additional applications will be developed. Users will have autonomy over their identity, which means that they will have full control of their personal identification information and therefore will not need to rely on a central entity or a third party for verification of their identity. . With a true NFT identity, users can create, sign, and verify claims, while parties who interact with a user will be able to prove their identity. In addition, users will be able to selectively disclose their information.
Users can build reputation on Metaverse through digital identities, improving how we exchange value. Value is exchanged through digital signatures, verification requests, and transactions; these transactions then allow a user to gradually build a reputation that can be inspected and verified by other digital identities and valuable intermediaries. You can download your ID from WISeID.com.
