IdentityBrIDge to simplify identity information exchange

08.03.2023 In order to enable companies to exchange identity information efficiently, researchers at BFH in cooperation with PostFinance and SBB are developing a generic solution in the IdentityBrIDge project that can transfer information easily, automatically and securely.

When identity information is exchanged between companies, this process is largely electronic. However, some steps are often still performed manually, resulting in high indirect costs. In order to be able to handle this exchange of information more efficiently in the future, researchers from the Institute for Data Applications and Security IDAS at Bern University of Applied Sciences BFH in cooperation with PostFinance and SBB are developing IdentityBrIDge, a generic solution that can transfer identity information from one company to another simply, automatically and without media discontinuity. IdentityBrIDge is designed to guarantee information security as well as traceability, non-repudiation and auditability in the regulation-compliant handling of business processes. The protection of the data and privacy of the persons involved will be ensured on an industry and process specific basis. The planned prototype will be made available to all interested parties as an open source project.
