The Sovrin Foundation names IdRamp as a distributed ledger Steward
The Sovrin Foundation Board of Trustees has unanimously approved IdRamp to be a Steward of the Sovrin Network distributed ledger. IdRamp will operate and maintain a validator node, tasked with ensuring the availability and integrity of the world’s first decentralized ledger built for self-sovereign identity. IdRamp will collaborate with other Sovrin Stewards to innovate and operate the Foundation’s decentralized digital identity network. The Network uses blockchain technology to enable the secure exchange of cryptographically signed credentials that provide permanent, private and trustworthy identity.
Traditional centralized identity systems are obsolete. Large scale data breaches continue to flourish. The rate of data exposure is increasing rapidly. The growing number of data breaches demonstrates the need for a secure global decentralized identity network. The Sovrin Network is designed to add a secure identity layer that provides a complete approach to identity management. The Sovrin Network makes secure and private self-sovereign digital identity possible for the first time in history.
