ADI association publishes specification for responsible digital identity
SANTA CLARA, California, August 09, 2021– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Today, the nonprofit ADI association announced the public availability of the Specification for Responsible Digital Identity (ADI). Specification is available here for public scrutiny and establishes interoperable and privacy-preserving accountability as a central pillar of digital identity. The specification was created and tested by members of the ADI Association, which consists of thirty organizations in the fields of healthcare, financial services and technology.
“As a member of the ADI Board of Directors, our CVS Health research team reviewed and contributed to the ADI specification from day one,” said Vanteya Pandit, vice president of sales IT systems at detail at CVS Health. CVS Health is currently leading the first pilot based on the ADI specification, using a reference implementation developed by Digital Trust Networks. “The ADI specification leverages blockchain technology to create an interoperable ecosystem that allows disparate businesses with separate systems to each have a precise view of the people they serve.”
Core concepts of the ADI specification
At the heart of the ADI specification are the concepts of accountability and confidentiality-preserving interoperability. Responsibility preserving confidentiality enables companies to detect fraud by combining verified identity and individual consent to validate information without compromising user privacy. Interoperability allows businesses to participate in the ADI ecosystem and adopt a decentralized identity without disrupting their existing identity infrastructure. In healthcare, this approach could reduce identity fraud, fill gaps in care, and improve the management of consent and patient delegation.
“The ADI community is fixing digital identity, with a focus on accountability and interoperability,” said Abbie Barbir, co-founder of the ADI association. “The work of our members has laid the groundwork for global adoption, finally building a system of trust and accountability for our digital lives.”
“The modularity of the ADI specification has allowed us to create a reference implementation that a customer can easily integrate with a few API calls,” said Suresh Batchu, co-founder and president of Digital Trust Networks.
The ADI specification encompasses industry standards from several standards organizations, including Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF), FIDO Alliance, and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
