Blockchain Allows for Major Increase in Digital Identity Security

Blockchain Allows for Major Increase in Digital Identity Security

Digital Identity & Blockchain

Digital identity is the term for a set of attributes that specifically demarcates an entity online. In layman’s terms, it’s the data that makes you, you on the Internet. Naturally, that type of data is sensitive. You don’t want it to end up in the wrong hands. What better way to protect your digital identity than to record it on a distributed ledger known as–you guessed it!–a blockchain!

So, it’s becoming pretty darn clear how safe and secure blockchain technology really is. It provides a level of encryption no centralized platform could even dream of in its dreams…..in its dream’s dreams. A peer-to-peer (P2P) network has many different systems working in tandem. As mentioned before (but if you didn’t catch it, read about P2P networks here), if a hacker is interested in breaking into a decentralized network, he must get into all of the the participating computers simultaneously. No small feat, even for the most skilled nefarious hackers.
