Hardware Roots of Trust

Hardware Roots of Trust as Enabler of Trust in Digital Transactions (DOOR) empowers entities to establish trust by providing strong verifiable evidence and assurances on the origin and integrity of the presented verifiable credentials.





Additional Info

DOOR achieves this goal by building a trusted layer between interacting parties that is based on strong cryptographic privacy-preserving tools. In this way, DOOR can enable the handling of VCs requiring higher level of assurances locally at the holder�s wallet.

We achieve the above goal by providing a new component on the Holder side that enables the use of hardware-based keys and advanced platform authentication and attestation protocols (i.e., Direct Anonymous Attestation) for offering the possibility to bind Verifiable Credentials (VCs) to the wallet of the holder. In this way, we transfer the root of trust of the SSI ecosystem purely on the digital wallet by considering an underlying Trusted Component as part of the wallet, without making any assumptions on the trustworthiness of the other layers.

Enduser Relevance

Innovators can build on our extension to integrate hardware-based keys and bring trust to the holder�s wallets, thus, enabling the vision of a decentralized data protected approach for Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI).
