Start immediately, focus on the use case, and let us take care of the technology.

Here’s a closer look at the foundational elements of our service:

  • Secure Hosting on Microsoft Azure: Our Credential Agent is hosted within Microsoft Azure’s secure cloud environment. This setup ensures robust security measures, including state-of-the-art encryption, network security, and compliance with international cybersecurity standards. Azure’s infrastructure offers resilience against digital threats, maintaining the integrity and confidentiality of the digital credentials managed through our service.
  • Service Level Agreement (SLA): Sphereon understands the diverse needs of our clients, offering a comprehensive standard SLA, but that can be tailored to match specific operational requirements and business goals. These agreements detail our commitments regarding service availability, performance metrics, and support responsiveness, ensuring alignment with your expectations for quality and reliability.
  • Privacy and Information Security Policy: Our SaaS-service is governed by a strong Privacy and Information Security Policy, designed to protect your data and comply with global privacy laws. We implement comprehensive security controls. These include encryption in transit, rigorous access management, and periodic security reviews to safeguard the data under our stewardship.
  • Data Processing Agreement (DPA): Sphereon’s DPA clarifies the scope and nature of the data processing activities we undertake on your behalf, including our non-involvement in processing personal information directly. Although our service architecture is designed to merely pass digital credentials through memory — thus not storing personal data — our DPA outlines our obligations for data security, processing conditions, and compliance with privacy regulations, offering you assurance of our data protection principles.

We already provide ‘Credential Agent’ services to several large enterprises. We will host a separate and dedicated credential agent for you to issue and verify Velocity Network Credentials.

The main implementation task is to connect the Velocity Network Credential Agent to your Line-of-Business (LOB) systems. Using a Scrum approach, with short iterations (Sprints) of 2 weeks, we’ll work with your technical team to integrate the Velocity Network and/or Sphereon APIs with your systems. We offer a range of integration possibilities, from REST APIs to OpenID integration and Enterprise Services Bus (ESB) integrations.

  • Operational Management and Support: For the duration of the pilot Sphereon will provide operation management and support for the cloud hosting on Microsoft Azure for a period of 6 months. This period can be extended.
  • Personal Data Processing: No personal data will be processed by us. We just just pass it through in memory: no metadata, data or transaction data will be stored or repurposed other than during the communication process of data between your systems and the Velocity Network. Nevertheless, we will handle all data with the utmost care for privacy.

W3C Verifiable Credentials

The Velocity Network is based on the technology of Verifiable Credentials, an open W3C standard specification that enables interoperable exchange of data in a privacy-preserving and verifiable way.

Verifiable Credentials establish trust between parties – individuals, authorities, businesses, devices – by enabling them to automatically assure the authenticity of data and documents and confidently exchange data and work together more effectively.
