Origins of NB Orbit
Where traditional identity systems have failed
Identity management has evolved from paper file folders to siloed or somewhat connected IAM systems product or service vendors centrally run.
One thing hasn’t changed much is each vendor still has to request the same or similar information. Their customers/users must input it again and again whenever they need to access a new offering, and then re-authenticate if the information provided is true and valid.
If people are repeating themselves and vendors repeating what others have already done, isn’t that a huge waste of resources?
The power of verifiable credentials
Self-sovereign Identity (SSI) is the much needed paradigm shift that allows individuals or organizations to have ownership of their digital and analog identities, and control over how their personal data is shared and used.
With SSI, users come with information validated and stored in Verifiable Credentials issued by trusted parties and readily to be taken by vendors with instant authentication. Decentralization makes Verifiable Credentials possible!
What's with the logo and why Orbit?
User centricity and interoperability is the objective
In the past, as a user, the world wasn’t centered around you; It was centered around each company/website that you accessed like the image below. At the same time, companies tried to build systems that focused on the customer so there has been a dichotomy between design and reality.
With Self Sovereign Identity (SSI), the solution doesn’t put customers in the middle, but rather all relationships are peer-to-peer. Essentially they “Orbit” each other, hence the name. So, if each person forms their own Orbit, when there are multiple people in a community, we get overlapping Orbits, hence the logo.
