Yoti, Galaxkey, LedgerState team up for government and email security services

Thursday 10 October 2019 10:14 CET | News

Yoti has revealed a pair of partnerships to provide solutions combining its biometric technology with encryption systems.

Through this, the company integrates its biometric facial recognition capabilities with blockchain technology from LedgerState and Galaxkey’s data protection platform. LedgerState and Yoti have created a new digital identity solution that enables secure government service delivery, through which Yoti provides biometric identity and its Doc Scan document verification technology, while LedgerState’s blockchain framework provides governments with a way to safeguard citizen data, use less resources, and avoid reliance on centralised data centers.

The partnership with Galaxkey will help email recipients to verify the identity of the sender and protect data both in transit and at rest. Yoti believes that receiving secure emails with KYC could eliminate phishing emails if implemented across the board. As such, a Yoti transaction is recorded when the user sends an email, and the email is encrypted with Galaxkey’s government and bank-grade encryption processes, using the transaction as an encryption component. After that, the email is sent to the recipient with a Yoti stamp, and can be easily verified.
