HYPERSIGN: An effective upgrade to IDPs

It is of no news that web3 is the natural successor for web2, the world is moving towards decentralization and those into tech are aware of that now. One issue that is been mentioned often when it comes to web is that of digital data privacy. The rate at which data are leaked or processed without the permission of users is alarming and needs to be corrected as soon as possible. Data is life and it should be one's right to have total control of one's data, without any negotiations.

IDPs (Identity Providers) are ways where information about users getIt is of no news that web3 is the natural successor for web2, the world is moving towards decentralization and those into tech are aware of that now. One issue that is been mentioned often when it comes to web is that of digital data privacy. The rate at which data are leaked or processed without the permission of users is alarming and needs to be corrected as soon as possible. Data is life and it should be one's right to have total control of one's data, without any negotiations.

IDPs (Identity Providers) leaked, a honeypot for hackers. According to Wikipedia, IDP is a system entity that creates, maintains, and manages identity information for principals and also provides authentication services to relying applications within a federation or distributed network. Identity providers offer user authentication as a service. An IDP allows user to use SSO (single sign-on) to access other websites.

A common mechanism of SSO for authentication are social logins such as Facebook and Google, they help service providers to quickly onboard an user without demanding them to go through the registration process. This saves users the stress of having to remember passwords or typing personal details (name, email, phone number, address, etc) for each service provider. Through Social login, the service provider gets access from IDP for building profile of the user in their portal.

The problem with IDPs is the fact that they store data of millions of users that can be used without users' consent, a major way this happens is by selling the data to a third party. This happens a lot as third-party companies are in to get users' data for boosts, majorly the advertising companies. There are 3 major concern of users concerning IDPs:
=> The IDP is in total control of data
=> IDP do not need permission to make use of the data
=> IDP can also track the location of user and what the user is doing at that particular time.

Introducing Hypersign
Hypersign is an Omni-chain decentralized Identity Infrastructure for the Web-3 world, it is a privacy-preserving authentication protocol for an enterprise. It leverages technologies like PKI and blockchain to provide end-users with the ability to control their data and the service providers the ability to verify credentials without making a request to the identity provider. Hypersign can also easily be integrated with existing IAM systems like Okta, Auth0, and Keycloak to provide passwordless authentication.

The Hypersign protocol works on the concept of the Issuance-verification paradigm. This means that a user stays in charge of his data and decides on how who gets access to his information, with the amount of the information he'll let out. Hypersign is the future and it is here now, users digital data needs to be protected without them having to worry or sacrifice about the passwordless feature.
