BC Digital Trust

Confident, Confidential Communication Online

Our economy depends on confidently proving things about ourselves. For example, you show someone your business registration documents—“credentials”—in order to open a business bank account.

However, online, physical credentials are not suitable. An emailed picture of a driver’s licence is insecure and hard to verify, and leaves the door open to identity theft and fraud.

A new, empowering solution to digital identity and communication is needed that’s:

  • Confidence-building
  • Trustworthy
  • Deployable in a quick and easy manner
  • Adopted worldwide, using an open source approach.

All these qualities are available in new technologies for what we call Digital Trust. It’s based on a worldwide-recognized model created by the Trust Over IP Foundation.

This site details Digital Trust technology projects from the Government of British Columbia in Canada.
