Security & Trust




Started in 2019, the collaboration between CherryChain and FBK-ICT performs research and innovation activities in the field of Distributed Ledger Technology and Smart Contract. One of the main goals is to investigate how existing digital identity solutions can be enforced in a distributed system. In this context, we are currently involved in the design of on-boarding and signature procedures. At the same time, we are investigating innovative digital identity solutions based on decentralized identifiers and verifiable credentials.
