The problem Authcoin solves is the trust issue for cross-organizationally connecting humans, organisations and machines for the emerging so-called nachine-to-everything (M2X) economy that, e.g., smart cities represent.
We have so far 3 publications with additional information being a scholarly peer-reviewed conference paper, a journal paper, and a defended PhD thesis for which Authcoin is instrumental:
Leiding, Benjamin, and Alex Norta. 'Mapping requirements specifications into a formalized blockchain-enabled authentication protocol for secured personal identity assurance.' International Conference on Future Data and Security Engineering. Springer, Cham, 2017.
Norta, Alex, Raimundas Matulevičius, and Benjamin Leiding. 'Safeguarding a formalized blockchain-enabled identity-authentication protocol by applying security risk-oriented patterns.' Computers & Security 86 (2019): 253-269.
Leiding, Benjamin. The M2X Economy-Concepts for Business Interactions, Transactions and Collaborations Among Autonomous Smart Devices. Diss. Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, 2019.
The trust and security for cross-organizationally connecting systems can be significantly enhanced and a human user has a much better assurance for engaging into sensitive data management in a process-aware way.
