All the sensitive identity data information is stored within the Trusted Execution Enclave. From our FAQ: A ‘Trusted Execution Enclave’ (Intel SGX) deployed over the Litentry parachain to store, decrypt & compute the identity graph and ensure that the data is not visible to anyone other than the user, including the node itself.
At the moment, identities cannot be unlinked. This is to prevent the farming of rewards using the same identities multiple times. In the future, we will enable an identity deactivation feature to allow you to disconnect your identities.
The Shielding Key provides privacy and control for your identity on Litentry. It allows sensitive profile data like account relationships to be encrypted in the Trusted Execution Environment. This data remains inaccessible without your Shielding Key, ensuring your information stays secure and unreadable. Only by providing your Shielding Key can your sensitive identity details be decrypted. This keeps you in control over who can access your digital identity. It's crucial to safeguard your Shielding Key to maintain privacy and effectively utilize the IdentityHub's identity functionalities.
Linking more addresses and enriching your identity on the IdentityHub allows you to build a more complete profile that better represents your digital identity across different blockchains and Web3 communities. The more thorough your profile, the higher your identity score, making you eligible for better rewards and reputation levels from different sites and apps. Overall, putting in the effort to build out a robust identity through Litentry pays off by enabling more use cases, improving your reputation, and qualifying you for the best rewards.
Currently, you can see the activity for verifiable credentials generation and identity linking. We are currently working on a way to obfuscate this information for more added privacy.
Not yet, we are working on integrating more chains in near future.
We are currently working on this feature and working with partners that will be able to recieve your credentials to provide you with benefits. Alternatively, you could share your credential as a JSON file with a project independently.
A verifiable credential is a tool that allows you to confirm specific parts of your online identity, safeguarding your privacy in the process. A profile organizes these credentials in a user-friendly manner, enhancing the benefits you can gain from the platforms that utilize these profiles.
No, Litentry cannot see the sensitive connections between accounts in your profile. This relationship data is stored encrypted within a Trusted Execution Enclave (Intel SGX) on the Litentry parachain. The enclave ensures the identity graph remains invisible to any party other than the user, including Litentry and the nodes themselves. Only with the explicit permission of the identity owner by providing their shielding key can this sensitive data be decrypted and computed within the enclave.
The main difference between your main account and the linked accounts is that only the main account could appear on your verifiable credentials. The linked accounts help provide more context for your digital identity.
