Jan 29th - Infosys - Solutions for secure digital identity and credentials: 2 government use cases

Infosys Public Services, a U.S. based subsidiary of Infosys (NYSE: INFY), is a leader in business consulting, technology solutions, and next-generation digital services. We enable public sector organizations in the US and Canada to navigate their digital transformation journey.

Credential management over a blockchain powered distributed ledger is relevant for several citizen services provided by governments. Most recently, Infosys Public Services was engaged by two US state governments in developing their strategy for applicability of Blockchain. Infosys completed two distinct projects for two US states: (a) In the first case, we developed a solution covering the issuance and verification of business licenses (for CPAs, CPA firms) on a blockchain network. (b) In the second case, we developed a digital credential management solution for certificates viz., marriage certificates issued by the county to its citizens. These digital credentials are issued to citizens' wallet and can be verified by potential verifiers for authenticity over a blockchain network.

Infosys Blockchain practice believes that the learnings and insights gained from these engagements in the US and many more around the world will be of interest to the participants of the upcoming Hyperledger Public Sector Special Interest Group. We look forward to presenting to the group in the Jan 2021 meeting.
