What is ONT ID?

ONT ID is a decentralized identity protocol, which establishes a cryptographic identity for each user, company, item and any other entity. ONT ID is based on W3c DID protocol specification and ontology blockchain technology. It is not restricted by any centralized organization and is completely controlled by users themselves. For users ONT ID has the following usages:

  • Single Sign On

Use ONT ID as your sole access point to the blockchain world.

  • Multi-source authentication

Using Ontology’s trust partners you can access identity verification services that cover nearly 200 countries and regions, as well as use your qualifications, reputation, and credit to manage your own personal profile.These data are encrypted and hosted in ONT ID accounts. Authentication and authorization are completely controlled by users themselves.

  • Self-controll your data

Privacy protection is ensured by cryptographic algorithms and your key for encryption can be self-managed or entrusted with a third party. All data access must obtain your authorization.

  • More blockchain functions

You can also use ONT ID for more blockchain transactions, such as attestation, payment and smart contract transactions.

Get started

Before using ONT ID, you can first get an idea of how ONT ID works.

The following roles will be present throughout the use of ONT ID:

  • Recipient The owner of the ONT ID, they can accept verifiable claims issued by verifiers, or issue verifiable claims to others.

  • Claim issuer This can be any ONT ID holder in the Ontology ecosystem, including Ontology trust anchors (partners providing the certification service), which may be government agencies, universities, banks, or third-party certification services (such as CA), biometric technology companies, and so on. These companies provide multi-dimensional authentication for ONT ID owners and record authentication activity and result hash, thereby reaching service demands of the user while using a standardized, trusted way to authenticate.

  • Claim verifier Receives the user's verifiable claim and verifies the case, such as with an employer who needs to verify the interviewer's identity information/education/industry skills.

  • Developer Provide various application development services for different users and scenarios using the ONT ID protocol and interface.
