While it is not an open source solution, the Yoti is a relatively new player in the highly-critical digital identity field, and they have developed a set of mobile-focused tools that allow people to prove their identity in a variety of use cases. Today they announced a new program to provide technical assistance and access to the company’s products and services, for projects in the ICT4D space.
They are looking for three more humanitarian organisations (or tech-focused humanitarian startups) for the next round of this program. Projects and programs doing any or all of the following are encouraged to apply:
- building or managing online communities where trust is a key component,
- developing a service – or building a community – which might require (or benefit from) verified identities of its users,
- building a humanitarian tool or service which generates, or makes use of, highly sensitive information, or
- working on other trust, identity, digital identity or related project challenges which they may not have thought about yet.
