Trustworthy Virtual Agents (“TVA”): InfoCert participates in PRESENT, a futuristic European research and innovation project

InfoCert will contribute to the project, certifying the virtual agents’ identity and ensuring Trust in new and revolutionary interaction schemes between humans and agents of the digital world

present

Rome, July 6th 2020 – InfoCert (Tinexta Group), the leading Qualified Trust Service Provider in Europe, is participating in the PRESENT project (Photoreal REaltime Sentient ENTity), funded by the European Union’s Horizon2020 in the research initiatives field, aimed at developing leadership in the enabling and industrial technologies.

The PRESENT project  will last three years and end in August 2022. This visionary project has the ambitious goal of creating trustworthy intelligent virtual agents. Specifically, the aim is to create embodied agents that will support or, where appropriate, replace humans in situations today based exclusively on the human-to-human interaction.

Such a new concept of a Trustworthy Virtual Agents (“TVA”), even though totally digital, will have human form and features and will be very similar to famous characters from the computer graphic animation world. As the graphic animation characters, they will be able to interpret and express a wide variety of emotions, enhancing interaction with humans to a potentially higher and more secure level.

The project, which was awarded European financing in excess of 4 million euros, foresees the participation of both private companies and academic institutions. Among these, the Spanish Pompeu Fabra University and German University of Augsburg; the British company Framestore, multiple academy award winner for visual effects (Blade Runner 2049, Gravity, Golden Compass); the Spanish company Brainstorm; UK company Cubic Motion, specializing in special effects for the film and game industries; INRIA, the French National Research and Safety Institute; Belgian company Crew, a pioneering company in immersive virtual reality performance and InfoCert, the largest  Certification Authority in Europe.

InfoCert will certify the TVA’s identity and secure trust along the entire value chain. This will open the door to new and advanced use cases of sentient agents in which trust and identity play a key role.

It’s not difficult to think about a not far away future where we will find ourselves interacting with a virtual agent that will play the role of a financial advisor, a personal trainer or a health worker. In all those scenarios it’s imperative to guarantee a reliable and secure Trust schemes, in order to be sure of the real identity of the virtual agent and protect ourselves from the risks associated with cybercrime –  Carmine Auletta Chief Innovation & Strategy Officer at InfoCert (Tinexta Group) declared.  In the last thirty years, since the arrival of the first web browser on the market, the interactions between humans and the digital world have grown at a hectic pace but most human interactions in digital transactions today do not manage the risks connected to the digital world in a trustworthy, secure fashion. The PRESENT project’s key aim is to put together leading companies and institutions from different countries and industries to lay the foundations of future human-digital interactions. Our ambitious objective is to shape this emerging sector and engender its development by increasing the level of Trust and Security for the benefit of all users. In this InfoCert is uniquely qualified to provide its knowhow that combines technology, security and compliance to enhance trust in the digital economy.”


The Present Project – Steve MacPherson, CTO at Framestore, said – “The digital world moves at a speed that can be bewildering for many people, which poses a challenge for many industries considering the huge role technology plays in our lives. Digital assistants are a fascinating example of how things are changing, and the PRESENT project aims to explore how we can bring a sense of emotional independence to these virtual characters and engender a deeper sense of engagement and meaning in our interactions with them. The team at Framestore have a long history when it comes to creating photoreal digital humans, and it’s exciting to partner with InfoCert who are developing tech focused on issues such as trust and accountability because without these security fundamentals, the technology is unmoored. InfoCert and their work with the Sovrin Foundation (www.sovrin.org) ensure that in the near future, these photoreal, real-time computer generated agents will have a verifiable digital identity with the notion of security built into their core foundations.”

InfoCert is the first Qualified Trust Service Provider (QTSP) in Europe to be accredited to issue LEI codes

The GLEIF International Foundation has accredited InfoCert to issue LEIs codes in various European countries. LEI were made mandatory by the latest Market in Financial Instruments Directive (Mifid II)

Rome, 4 June 2020 – InfoCert (Tinexta Group), the largest Certification Authority at European level, announces that it has been accredited by the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) as a Local Operating Unit (LOU) authorised to issue Legal Entity Identifiers (LEI). LEIs are 20-character, alphanumeric codes which are mandatory for some legal entities engaging in financial markets, where their identity must be certain. Accreditation is not only related to Italy but extends to Spain and Luxembourg where InfoCert operates through its subsidiaries Camerfirma and LuxTrust.

GLEIF, a not-for-profit foundation headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, was founded by the Financial Stability Board, composed of the representatives of Central Banks, Government Entities and Regulatory Authorities of approximately 25 jurisdictions. GLEIF’s role is to support the implementation and use of the LEI globally to increase transparency in financial markets via the clear and unique identification of legal entities participating in financial transactions, thus containing market abuse and financial fraud. Currently more than 1.6 million of LEI codes have been issued worldwide.

The LEI code is the first instrument devised for the unique identification of financial institutions’ clients at a global level. In fact, LEI codes enable the identification of legal entities operating in financial markets in any country around the world.

InfoCert is the first European QTSP authorized to issue LEI codes, allowing it to further enrich its portfolio of Trusted Services. Thanks to this accreditation, InfoCert will be able to strengthened its leadership position as Digital Trust provider of the corporate world.

As from today, in fact, companies can obtain through InfoCert their LEI code bundled with PSD2 certificates, website certificates, digital identities, digital signature certificates, electronic seals and registered e-mail.

“Today’s accreditation represents a step forward in our strategy aimed at enhancing the value of Digital Trust in the financial sector. It also enables InfoCert to strengthen its position as a leader in the supply of digital trust services at international level” saysCarmine Auletta, Chief Innovation & Strategy of InfoCert Tinexta (Group).“At the same time, digital certificates issued by InfoCert are a great opportunity to strengthen and accelerate the adoption of LEI codes. In fact, while LEI codes enable the unique identification of legal entities at global level, digital certificates ensure the completion of any digital transaction in a secure, reliable and legally-binding manner. By combining the LEI and the Certificate it is possible to maximise their reciprocal benefits and to guarantee the highest level of security to final adopters.

“GLEIF is delighted to welcome InfoCert as a LOU,” says Stephan Wolf, CEO of GLEIF. “This marks a further step towards meeting our goal of making standardized digital signing with the LEI available to all. Because of its inherent trust credentials, the LEI delivers value in simplifying entity identification management. We’re confident that InfoCert will provide valuable assistance to regulators and financial market participants, helping firms to comply with regulation and ensure enhanced trust when operating in the global digital economy.”

InfoCert focuses on Romania: a direct commercial presence is underway within a highly potential market

The decision is part of the strategic business development plan in Eastern Europe.

Digital trust solutions are ideal for companies facing the COVID-19 emergency, and that want to maintain their competitiveness also in view of economic recovery.

Rome, June 4, 2020 – InfoCert (Tinexta Group), the largest Certification Authority at the European level, announces that it has launched a commercial presence in Romania for the development of the local market, which is considered to have high potential for digitization. The decision is part of InfoCert’s strategic international expansion plan and, in particular, in the Eastern European area where the company is already active in countries such as Slovenia, Croatia, Poland and Hungary.

Romania’s digital market is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing in the Eastern European area, relying on one of the most developed and innovative banking sectors in the area and with a historic presence of the main European banking groups that are already InfoCert customers

InfoCert offers the Romanian market the best-in-class digital trust services and solutions by means of which it is gaining a reputation throughout Europe: Based on cutting-edge technologies and already compliant with the European and Romanian regulatory framework, InfoCert solutions are able to meet the increasingly complex needs of customers, who are sometimes called upon to face unexpected and difficult challenges such as the current global health emergency for COVID-19 and the sudden explosion of phenomena such as smart working.

In fact, more than ever, the solutions for concluding digital transactions with full legal value – such as Digital Signature and Digital Preservation – have proven to be fundamental for those who must manage and promote their business by operating remotely: for example, for banks and financial institutions that allow customers to open current accounts, obtain financing or reschedule online mortgage payments; for insurance companies that manage to make it possible for policies to be taken out in real time; for telephone companies that allow customers to easily request and activate a SIM card; or maybe for a small businessman who can sign contracts with customers and suppliers without any need for face-to-face meetings.

“We are by far the largest Qualified Trust Service Provider in Europe and our customers acknowledge our ability to make their digital transformation ‘pragmatic’. And this is already happening also in Romania, a market with a great potential for growth.” affirms Michele Lavizzari, Chief International Development Officer of InfoCert (Tinexta Group). “We have ambitious goals and we are convinced that we can achieve them also thanks to the competence and enthusiasm of a manager like Adrian Moraru, whom we have chosen as the country’s sales manager.”

With a degree in Telecommunication and Electronics Engineering from the Polytechnic of Bucharest, Adrian Moraru has a consolidated experience in IT and Digital Trust solutions. In particular, he was responsible – for companies operating in the sector – for the development of the market, including the management of tenders and contracts, and relations with existing customers.

“I am convinced that Romania will appreciate the quality and reliability of InfoCert’s Trust Services, even more so in a historical period such as the current one in which their added value is even more evident” affirms Adrian Moraru, InfoCert Sales Manager Romania ( Tinexta Group). “In particular, the interest of the banking and financial sector in customer onboarding and instant lending solutions is significant. It is an area in which we already boast high-level local references: the national branches of some global credit companies. However, promising contacts and negotiations are already underway with various companies in the worlds of Insurance, Healthcare and Utilities”.

InfoCert presents DIZME, the revolutionary Digital Identity platform: a true bridge between Self-Sovereign Identity and eIDAS compliance

The Platform offers significant future opportunities for participants in the new Trust Community, including, first and foremost, leaders in the fields of finance, telco, utilities, and retail

Rome, 17 September 2019 – InfoCert (Tinexta Group), the largest Qualified Trust Service Provider (“QTSP”) in Europe, presents DIZME, the Digital Identity platform based on blockchain technology,  designed and created to integrate SSI (Self-Sovereign Identity) with eIDAS regulatory compliance, thereby combining the respective benefits, that is, a distributed digital identity with full legal validity.

DIZME is the Domain-Specific Network based on the Sovrin framework, a US non-profit foundation established to promote the self-sovereign vision. InfoCert is a Founding Steward of the Sovrin Trust Framework.

DIZME was designed by InfoCert and the technology implementation was carried out by eTuitus, a spin-off of the University of Salerno in which InfoCert is an investor.

Interoperability – between SSI and the TRUST services defined by the eIDAS regulation – is made possible by the dual role of InfoCert, which acts not only as Founding Steward of the Sovrin Network (as well as DIZME Governance Authority) but also as a QTSP in accordance with eIDAS regulation.

“The issue of Digital Identity is the most strategic innovation area for the business transformation of various industries, as evidenced by global IT Advisors. With this in mind, DIZME is truly revolutionary: a platform that is the result of InfoCert’s constant commitment to the strategic development of the best trust solutions for a digital economy that goes beyond traditional boundaries. We are also proud because DIZME recognizes and protects the right of users to independently manage, control and govern their identity”, states Daniele Citterio, InfoCert’s Chief Technology Officer (Tinexta Group). “This confirms our role as facilitators of digital transformation on a global level, based on participation in important international research and development projects, presence in various foreign markets, and partnerships with important foreign businesses”.

In practice, with DIZME, InfoCert stays ahead of the market by launching a phase of further innovation compared to a simple remote enrollment of digital identity, of which, moreover, it has always been a leader.

DIZME is currently available in a BETA version and the phase of building the partner ecosystem – made up of leading companies in the financial, industrial and academic world – has already begun and the first pilot projects have been launched.

DIZME: roles and economic model

Partners (called Issuers) selected by InfoCert, as Governance Authority, can participate in the DIZME Trust Community, as a function of their ability to contribute to the growth of the network with their own set of credentials. Furthermore, all third parties who wish to use DIZME credentials within their digital transformation processes may do so as “Verifiers”. Using Dizme any internet user (called Owner in the ecosystem) with a mobile device can benefit from the Trust Community services by simply downloading the DIZME Wallet and completing his/her profile. Since DIZME supports the self-sovereign vision, it offers Identity Credentials to Owners free of charge and bases its economic model on the “Verifier pays Issuer” principle, which benefits both Issuers and Verifiers: the former are rewarded for sharing the Owners’ credentials in their possession, assuming responsibility for identification and classification costs, while the latter benefit from simpler, safer, faster and more cost-effective digital onboarding processes. Not to mention the clear improvement in the user experience for the Owner, who is finally no longer forced to manage numerous credentials and is able – with a single identity under his/her full control – to finalize any digital transaction.

DIZME: how it works

The Governance Authority (i.e., InfoCert) defines the identity credentials scheme managed by DIZME and the mapping of the three Assurance Levels (differentiated in terms of identity verification and resulting “confidence levels”). On the proposal of individual Issuers, additional schemes and credential types (Context-Specific Credentials) can be defined, relating, for example, to personal preferences, credit or income information, certifications and so on. These credentials – not limited by specific data types or implementation methods nor imposed by a central hub – are instantly accessible and verifiable without complex integration procedures or commercial contracts.

Verification of identity or context-specific attributes (Proof Request) can be Full Disclosure (with the request to share a set of Credentials, formulated by the Verifier to the Owner, who must explicitly consent) or Zero-Knowledge (with the Owner ensuring the Verifier a certain requirement without fully revealing his/her Credentials). And, depending on the Identity Credential presented by the Owner, the Verifier can issue a SignRequest – Advanced or Qualified – to obtain a digital signature – one-shot and eIDAS compliant – with which the Owner can confirm a specific transaction, fully guaranteeing legal compliance and value.

DIZME: some use examples

The benefits for economic operators using DIZME are numerous and tangible.

For example, banks and financial institutions can “share” KYC (Know Your Customer) credentials, collected for anti-money laundering regulations (AML), and reuse them, avoiding the repetition of burdensome procedures, facilitating the acquisition of new customers, making it easier to subscribe services and much more. This scenario can be replicated in any industry with similar needs, such as telco, utilities, and insurance.

Another area of primary application is that of digital certification of skills, based on Open Badge standards, which envisages the issuing of virtual certificates of training or professional skills: with DIZME, they are collected in the user’s wallet and can be verified by parties such as employment agencies and recruitment companies, even allowing the remote signing of hiring contracts, using digital signature.

Finally, the retail sector provides another example of a use case. With DIZME, economic operators can manage loyalty programs, querying the customer wallet in Zero-Knowledge mode without obtaining sensitive data and avoiding the formalities required by the GDPR regulations typical of data collection in paper format at the point of sale.
