Empowering Secure and Privacy-Centric Relationships between Apps and Users

Polygon ID is a powerful suite of developer tools designed to facilitate trusted and secure relationships between applications and users. By leveraging Polygon ID, developers can enable the exchange of verifiable credentials that are protected by robust cryptography and the blockchain. With a strong emphasis on privacy, decentralization, and user data self-sovereignty, Polygon ID is poised to revolutionize the way digital identities are managed and utilized.

What Sets Polygon ID Apart?

  1. Privacy by Default: Polygon ID employs a zero-knowledge native protocol, ensuring that privacy is inherently built into the solution.

  2. No Direct Issuer-Verifier Communication: Polygon ID eliminates the need for direct communication between issuers and verifiers, enhancing privacy and security.

  3. Scalable and Self-Sovereign: Polygon ID offers a scalable and self-sovereign digital identity solution, empowering users with control over their personal data.

  4. On-chain and Off-chain Verification: Polygon ID supports both on-chain and off-chain verification, enabling the deployment of a wide range of Web2 and Web3 use cases.

  5. Efficient Bulk Issuance: With Polygon ID, developers can issue claims in bulk, benefiting from highly efficient on-chain storage at minimal transactional costs.

  6. Transformative Use Cases: Polygon ID enables a wide array of transformative use cases, including protection against Sybil attacks while preserving privacy, non-reusable proofs, and safeguards against digital footprint tracking.

Harnessing the Power of Zero-Knowledge Technology. Polygon ID leverages zero-knowledge technology in two key ways:

  1. Preserving Privacy: With Polygon ID, users (Identity Holders) can send proofs of information within a credential to the Verifier (dApp) without revealing the actual information. In Selective Disclosure mode, users can choose which specific information to share, along with a proof of its correctness, without disclosing the entire credential.

  2. Verifying Computations: Zero-knowledge proofs enable Polygon ID to prove that a computation has been performed correctly without requiring the Verifier to recompute it. This is particularly useful for verifying that an identity is executing a state transition correctly.

By combining the power of zero-knowledge technology with a developer-friendly ecosystem, Polygon ID is set to redefine the landscape of digital identity management. With its focus on privacy, scalability, and user empowerment, Polygon ID provides developers with the tools they need to build secure, trust-based relationships between applications and users, ushering in a new era of digital interactions.
