SOFIE Identity, Authentication and Authorisation (IAA) Component


The goal of the SOFIE Identity, Authentication, and Authorisation (IAA) component is to provide mechanisms that can be used for identifying communicating endpoints, as well as for authenticating and authorising users wishing to access a protected resource. 

User authentication and authorisation is implemented using access tokens. In its present form, the IAA component can use the following types of access tokens: Hyperledger Indy Decentralised Identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials (VC), W3C-based VCs, JSON Web Tokens (JWT), and JWT backed by Ethereum ERC-721 tokens.

  • Keywords: Verifiable Credentials, Decentralized Identifiers
  • License Type: Free or open source
  • Technology readiness level: 7.
