KILT’s mission is to return control over personal data to its owner, restoring privacy to the individual and enabling innovative business models around identity and credentials. KILT aims to achieve this by combining real-world trust with the benefits of blockchain technology. Developers can use KILT to create identifiers for people, machines, services and anything that identities can be built on.
KILT is built on Parity Substrate, and launched mainnet as a Kusama parachain in September 2021. Substrate offers seamless integration opportunities with Kusama and Polkadot projects like gaming, NFTs, DeFi and DEXs; KILT is also implementing enterprise partnerships in the energy, health care and banking sectors.
For consumers: KILT provides a way to represent your identity without revealing things you prefer to keep private. It brings the old process of trust in real-world verifiable credentials (passport, driving licence, certificate, etc.) to the digital world, while keeping your data private and in your possession. Users have the option to store information and can choose what information they want to disclose and to whom.
KILT Protocol was founded in 2018 by Ingo Rübe, CEO of BOTLabs GmbH, together with Hubert Burda Media, where he served as CTO from 2012 to 2017. Earlier Ingo worked as project director for the German publisher Axel Springer SE from 2006 to 2012. Ingo served on the board of directors of the Drupal Association from 2017-2020, and BOTLabs is a founding member of the International Association for Trusted Blockchain Applications (INATBA).
Recognising the potential of blockchain to restore autonomy and control over personal data, Ingo set out to create identity solutions that could be standardised and implemented by corporates and entrepreneurs worldwide.
In KILT, digital identity consists of two parts: a Digital Identifier (DID), and Verifiable Credentials (VCs) linked to the identifier. Identity is built by adding more credentials to the identifier.
Using KILT, a trusted authority (the Attester) will be able to issue documents (Credentials) which are then owned and controlled by the person (the Claimer) they are issued to. KILT never stores personal data on the blockchain; this data is in the Credential which is under complete control of the user. The blockchain is only used to store hash values.
Blockchain technology enables the user to prove the authenticity and validity of their Credential to anyone they decide to show it to using this hash. And the Attester has the ability to create a new hash to revoke the Credential if it is no longer valid.
KILT is building a permissionless trust infrastructure for real-world business cases that help individuals and entities prove and protect their online identity.
By offering accreditation in the digital world, where businesses can verify credentials and build trust, KILT is providing a base layer for verifiable credentials in Web 3.0.
