Canadian government collaboration presentation:

  • Links are provided on the Use Case section of the PSWG wiki
  • How can Canadian government step up in it's role of providing trust in the economy?
    • Problem: Business people have to navigate a confusing number of requirements to open a business in British Columbia and Ontario. How can the government make it easier to for businesses to interact with government in a trustworthy basis?
      • Digital way to verify credentials
      • three governments collaborate - federal, BC, Ontario
      • 20 applications on VON platform
      • Using Hyperledger Indy
    • General model - verifiable credentials model
      • high assurance identity card
      • individual owns credential
      • distributed keys management system
      • ledger helps manage public keys and enable exchange of verifiable credentials between peers
      • no data regarding transaction, no personal or business data on blockchain itself
  • Pattern
    • issuers / holders / verifiers
      • documents like banking credential or marriage license used to gain access to services
    • What services can we issue from and issue to?
      • Public business data is open information
      • create verified credentials and give them a target to issue to
      • TheOrgBook - simple directory of verifiable credentials about businesses
      • In the future a business person would have her own digital wallet, this is a step toward that, but TheOrgBook is a community wallet
    • Business IDs are low hanging fruit to gain knowledge without tackling people's personal data
    • Single business registry - OrgBook
    • single code base between Ontario and BC
    • only display publicly available free information
    • use existing public infrastructure
    • searchable database - limited to corporations and D/B/A (Doing Business As)
    • digital signatures compared to blockchain
  • Future - permits, licenses, businesses will be able to share peer to peer on digital wallet
