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. Other examples are e-health, industry 4.0, IoT systems, and so on. Currently existing identity authentication are are not flexible enough to cater for such complex collaboration scenarios.

Our solution that we term Authcoin, focuses on the flexible configurability of of challenge sets for self-sovereign identity authentication of, in a first instance, humans who engage in M2X economy collaborations. We also consider the self-sovereign identification of organisations, while the identity authentication of machines in an M2X economy is future work for which we aim to lay a foundation in this project.

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:

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.

Enduser Relevance

The problem with the emerging M2X economy is the great amount of socio-technical systems such as IoT systems, cyberphysical systems, e-governance systems, and so on, that need to be cross-linked for trusted data-exchange. In that context, the use of multi-factor challenge sets that can be flexibly configured to enable self-sovereign identity authentication is essential for humans, organizations and machines. That way, 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.
