IBM和超级账本加入区块链身份基金会(DIF)

IBM和超级账本已经与去中心化身份基金会(DIF)签署协议,正式加入该联盟。去中心化身份基金会(DIF)成立于今年早些时候,是一个致力于提高基于区块链建立的身份系统互操作性和标准的联盟。

除了新加入的这两家重量级企业,去中心化身份基金会还有一大批成员,包括像微软、埃森哲这样的大企业,Civic与Gem等创业公司以及一些开源项目,如uPort和Sovrin等。

尽管一些公司之间存在相互竞争,但它们仍在这个项目上通力合作,希望避免创建像传统基础设施那样如孤岛般断联的系统,并将其替代。

去中心化身份基金会表示:“要实现这种自主权,需要创建可互操作的生态系统所必需的基本原则,协议和工具。” 为了实现这一目标,该组织正在制定一系列用于构建区块链的细则和实施参考,如个人数据存储和去中心化标识符。

IBM在此前就已经开始与加拿大的一个银行联盟合作开发基于区块链的身份系统,后者之前曾表示支持基金会关于制定标准的目标,但还未参与进来。

IBM在周三发布的文章中表示:“IBM之所以加入去中心化身份基金会,是因为我们相信可以借助开放的群体和标准来实现个人身份自主。”

超级账本其实本身就是一个区块链联盟。目前该组织正在与去中心化身份基金会成员Sovrin基金会进行合作,双方希望通过Indy项目,开展身份领域的类似工作。

 

IBM and Hyperledger have signed on with the Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF), a consortium formed earlier this year in a bid to promote interoperability and standards for blockchain-based ID systems.

The two enterprise blockchain heavyweights join a diverse group of organizations, including big corporates like Microsoft and Accenture, startups such as Civic and Gem, as well as open-source projects like uPort and Sovrin.

"This should be a signal that there is broad agreement in this area that crosses some significant strategic [and] organizational boundaries," Daniel Buchner, the DIF's executive director, told CoinDesk by email.

While some of these firms compete with each other, they are nonetheless collaborating on this project in order to avoid building systems that function like disconnected silos – basically, the same as the legacy infrastructures they seek to replace.

"[T]his diverse set of individuals and organizations is bound by a common creed: the belief that identity is composed of a deeply personal collection of data that defines us, and that your identity should answer to no one but you," the foundation said in a blog post published Wednesday.

To achieve such self-sovereignty requires "the fundamental primitives, protocols, and tools necessary to create an interoperable ecosystem," the group said. To that end the group is working on a set of specs and reference implementations for building blocks such as personal data stores and decentralized identifiers.

IBM, which has also been working on a blockchain-based ID system with a consortium of banks in Canada, previously expressed support for the foundation's goal of creating standards but had not until now committed to participating.

"IBM joined DIF because we believe it will take open community and standards to achieve the vision of self-sovereign identity," Big Blue said in its own blog post Wednesday.

Hyperledger, itself a consortium, has been doing similar work in the identity space through Project Indy, a partnership with fellow DIF member Sovrin Foundation.
