Identity System Comparison

Vouch dIAM Eliminates Your IAM System’s Security Flaws

The foundational security issue facing every enterprise is the security of their employee and customer password database, managed by centralized systems using traditional user ID and password credential approaches (just like the system your company is running on today!!).

Vouch dIAM Blockchain Removes the Weakness in Centralized Password-Based Systems

Vouch dIAM (decentralized Identity and Access Management) is a Blockchain-based Identity Trust Platform used to secure employee, customer and device identities from hacking.

Vouch dIAM works with your IAM to prevent security breaches, eliminate passwords & enable secure digital ecosystems. Below we detail the Vouch dIAM attributes as compared to today’s centralized IAM security systems:

System Element

Vouch / Decentralized

Centralized Systems

System Architecture

Vouch / Decentralized

Centralized Systems

The architecture of the technology itself is implemented across multiple networks and organizations.

The architecture is highly centralized in a single physical location, in a master system (IDP/IAM).

System Administration & Secret / Private keys Access / Granting

Vouch / Decentralized

Centralized Systems

Granted by a flexible quorum of individuals, each secured by identities with multiple trust anchors.

Managed by a single or multiple super administrators or a vault, with passwords or hardware keys as the trust anchors.

Human Identity Security Factor

Vouch / Decentralized

Centralized Systems

Created from multiple trust anchors including a person’s biometrics, mobile device ID, and other factors such as a government ID.

A single password, potentially combined with a second factor.

Secret / Private Key Exploitation / Subversion

Vouch / Decentralized

Centralized Systems

Blockchain-based cryptography makes theft/tampering of Secret / Private Keys extremely difficult.

Secret / Private Keys can easily be deleted, lost, or copied through password-based sign-up, reset and recovery processes.

Breach Detection and Response

Vouch / Decentralized

Centralized Systems

Blockchain stores all actions and events with absolute certainty. Breaches are easily detected and can be remedied automatically.

Breaches are difficult to detect and remedies are slow to execute as fake identities, devices and compromised firmware can’t be excluded with high confidence.

Make Security Simpler / More Accessible

Vouch / Decentralized

Centralized Systems

Systemic simplification includes client BYOD, SMS sign-up and authorization, broad decentralization of security access and enforcement.

Centralized security grows more complex and process intensive as the system grows.

System Costs

Vouch / Decentralized

Centralized Systems

System costs remain linear as the system grows.

System costs escalate as the system grows.

Vouch’s comprehensive approach to security includes the following:

  • Remove the source of breached password databases – by replacing centralized password storage with decentralized blockchain storage of user credentials (see Vouch System Overview).
  • Completely eliminate passwords – Passwords are a security weakness, a terrible user experience and costly for the enterprise to support (see Cost of Password Resets).
  • Protect User Credentials – by not storing any Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and by enabling the assertion of users’ credentials through Biometrics that reduce user friction and are more secure than passwords.
  • Integrate with existing IAM Systems – Vouch dIAM is easily integrated into Enterprise Identity Provider (IDP) and Identity Access Management (IAM) solutions from suppliers such as Forgerock™, Idaptive™, Okta®, Ping Identity® or Microsoft® ADFS or Azure™ using SAML and Open ID Connect.
