      • Identity lifecycle management is managed by SwissSign.

    • SSI – self-sovereign identity

      • Thanks to API integration, proof of identity is automatically issued, verified and – if necessary – revoked.

      • The data on the issued proof of identity matches the data in your systems, ensuring immediate and error-free issue.

      • The verified data can be seamlessly integrated into your systems and processed further.

Typical use cases
