加拿大区块链数字身份认证系统2018年正式上线

想要百分之百证明消费者身份的确不是一件简单的事。从简单的会员卡,到指纹识别,再到虹膜扫描,为了确定身份,各种方式被用了个遍。然而,大多数生物特征识别系统需要大量基础设施,而且费用昂贵,但简单和廉价的方法安全度又不高。

加拿大正在测试一种安全度高且花费较少的解决方案。一个基于区块链技术的新系统将帮助加拿大公民轻松证明自己的身份,而且准确性也将大幅度提高。

区块链技术为这种有效且经济的解决方案提供了基础。该系统允许消费者将所有个人数据存储在一台设备上 ,比如一台私人电话上。当消费者需要共享这些数据时,只需向企业或机构提供数据的私人秘钥,然后所有的数据就可以通过区块链仅对这家企业或机构开放。

据了解,这一系统可以为那些不希望自己的数据在多个数据库中存储的消费者提供了一个简单的解决方案。而信息存储于多个数据库往往会被黑客所利用。针对非加拿大公民,一些类似于SelfKey这样的私营企业也会提供相似解决方案。

将个人数据保存在个人存储设备上能够保证数据安全。与最近的Equifax事件一样(美国三大信用报告机构之一的Equifax因受到黑客攻击,导致近1.43亿名民众的隐私,包含社会安全码、驾照号码及信用卡资料等个资外泄,情事相当严重,受到大众抨击。),由于公司没有内部数据存储,所以黑客也就无需去寻找其他数据源,只是盯着它进行攻击。加拿大区块链数字身份认证系统将于2018年初上线。


Finding ways to prove consumer identity with 100 percent accuracy has been a tough task. Everything from simple cards to fingerprints to iris scans have been used in different applications to provide identity certainty. However, most biometric systems require huge amounts of infrastructure and are cost-prohibitive, while simpler and cheaper methods are often not secure.

Canada has now embraced a solution for this security/cost dichotomy. A new system based on Blockchain technology will allow Canadian citizens to prove who they are instantaneously, and with 100 percent accuracy.

The power of Blockchain

The underpinning power for this effective and cost efficient solution is Blockchain technology. The system allows consumers to store all their personal data on a single device - a personal phone.

When a consumer needs to share that data, they need to simply give the institution their private key for the data, and through the Blockchain, all the information is available for that institution only.

Private options

The system provides a simple solution for consumers who don’t want their data stored on a number of different databases - points of weakness for hackers to take advantage. For non-Canadian citizens, some private companies like SelfKey and others are also offering similar solutions.

The movement of personal data onto individual storage devices keeps data secure. Hackers, like those in the recent Equifax issue, have no motivation to seek out other sources of data since companies have no internal data storage. The system in Canada will come online in early 2018.
