About certME

What is certME?

certME is the first service in Romania that enables the management, verification and guarantee of trusted digital identities, through an ecosystem that allows the service providers to merge their client identification processes so that the digital onboarding process to be performed only one time, while all interactions among the parties are performed exclusively online.

certME is the sole service that uses blockchain-based decentralized mechanisms to deliver eIDAS-compliant digital identities.

How does it work?

There are three roles within the certME ecosystem

User

The owner of the personal information

Service provider

the consumer of the personal information - i.e a bank, a telecom company

Validator

the entity that confirms the personal information /the client’s identity

Exemple

1

The User wants to get a digital certificate for electronic signature.

According to the law, it is compulsory to identify him and to validate his identity. In order to do this, the user will go the office of the digital certificate provider which plays the role of Validator in certME.

2

After the identification and identity validation processes are completed, the user has the possibility to receive, free of charge, a certME digital identity, so that he would not have to repeat the identification process (including the travel time to the providers’ office) for each service provider – banking, telecom, insurance etc. Instead, he can use his trusted digital identity!

3

The user receives a certME identity electronic wallet (mobile application) that he can use to contract, exclusively online, the services of the other providers enrolled within the system – a new card, a phone subscription, electricity subscription etc. All the while, certME guarantees to the provider that the user’s digital identity is trusted!

Development

The certME project was developed in certSIGN’s research incubator, a highly experienced company, both nationally and internationally, in developing information and IT systems security solutions.
