Civic AMA: Product & Partners


Day/Session:Wednesday 4K

Convener:Zachary Bush

Notes-taker(s): Titus Capilnean


Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:


Civic’s Secure Identity Platform (SIP) uses a verified identity for multi-factor authentication on web and mobile apps without the need for usernames or passwords. Through the decentralized architecture with the blockchain and biometrics on the mobile device, our platform provides multi-factor authentication without a username, password, third-party authenticator, or physical hardware token. 


Zack demonstrated Civic Connect. The app-to-app libraries for Android and iOS enable partners to trigger an identity verification process natively from within their app with the “Connect with Civic” button. Users authorize the verified credential request and can then continue with the app they intend to use.

Questions revolved around the architecture, the way the app communicates with the server and the Identity Requester - more technical information can be found here:  https://docs.civic.com/
