A decentralized identity software company Spruce is working on providing a decentralized user identity verification system that will be a secure sign-in using Ethereum. This proposed system for secure sign-in is supported by Ethereum Foundation (EF) and Ethereum Name Service (ENS) with the expectation that it will enhance user experience with Ethereum.

As per the declaration done on 13th September, Spruce is willing to give full control of users to manage their own online identities. This would serve as an alternative that will help everyone to hand over one’s data to Google, Apple, and Facebook. Spruce is planning to work closely with ENS and the EF to ensure that its solution is compatible with existing standards used throughout the Ethereum ecosystem. The company assure that “the final result will be friendly to implementers while remaining vendor-neutral.” The team highlighted that this standardized workflow will enable the Ethereum users “to use a digital identity that they fully control to seamlessly access the web,” Spruce added that it has already started to deliver a best-practices survey, user research, specification drafts, and reference implementation.

In July a proposal was submitted by EF and ENS for encouraging developers and software firms to introduce a full sign-in package that uses an open standard for access delegation Oauth. Based on this proposal Spruce was selected.

Spruce highlights that the Ethereum ecosystem already has more than “‘tens of millions” of active wallet users every month, login into their wallets using cryptographic keys for transactions and community governance. The firm said “The security of these wallets has been proven across billions of dollars of digital assets at stake — not theoretical security, but real tests in production. These secure wallets can also be used to sign in to Web2 services.”

Another firm working on a similar app:

In July, as reported Numio the crypto payments and identity management platform, built an app that enables users to verify their identity to web services without sending any sensitive information. Numio’s system uses zero-knowledge proofs to cryptographically verify the data.
