WISeKey International Holding Ltd, a cybersecurity, Blockchain and IoT company, announced that it launched WISeID Human Browser, an open source software that allows users to take full control of their own digital identities, based on a decentralized Blockchain using the central aspect of Web 3.0.
Through WISeID Human Browser, instead of logging into an application like twitter, Google Chrome, Safari, or Facebook, users can login into a personal, WISeID cryptographically authenticated browser they personally own.
WISeKey launched WISeID Human Browser during The TransHuman Code Gathering of Mind event in Davos. The event offered exclusive insights from the various authorities on the application of AI, blockchain, cybersecurity, IoT, and robotics to transhuman, education, employment, communication, transportation, communities, security, government, food, finance, entertainment and health.
WISeID Human Browser is based on a decentralized Blockchain where users act as peers (each user must download a copy of the Blockchain) and uses dual factor authentication technology to authenticate and then validate that users’ original Identity or Attribute certifications have not been changed or misrepresented.
WISeID Human Browser, an open source software audited by network participants and enabled by several types of biometrics, uses a decentralized digital identity acting as a “birth certificate” which is then embedded into existing browsers.
WISeID Human Browser gives users the ability to control their identity and create the equivalent of a digital passport, able to build reputations across Web 3.0 and interact with economies without sacrificing privacy, value, or security. Providers of web services will require consent and authorization from users / owners of the Human Browser, who will then get paid with WISeCoin or any other valuable token for their consent.
