We are on a mission

To unlock the use of verifiable personal data in a private & secure way

Our goal in web3

Adding privacy
to blockchains

We help you to make your pseudonymous identity tangible without being seen. As a decentralized identity aggregator, we provide the structure and tools to empower you and your digital identity. 

The technology

Execution Environment

We make use of Trusted Execution Environments (TEE). They can be seen as a hardcoded blackbox. The code is open source, but once data is entered it can not be tampered with or be seen by anyone else than the original controller. It issues truth statements in the form of verifiable credentials based on incorruptible hardware and code.

Using a new data standard

Verifiable Credentials

Verifiable credentials are often called 'the shipping container of the digital age'. They package & repackage data content while adding cryptographic proofs and digital signatures of the subjects and issuers to the message. This new data standard allows for selective disclosure and maximum interoperability to bridge trust domains between organisations.

FAQ about TEE's

Common Questions about Trusted Execution Environments
Why does Litentry Use TEEs?
To allow users to aggregate their fragmented identity, Litentry needs to offer storage of sensitive user data, such as a user's Polkadot or Ethereum account, Twitter account and credit scores. Trusted Execution Environments have been chosen as a fundamental and scalable approach to guarantee the security of data storage and data processing.
What is a TEE?
A Trusted Execution Environment is a secure area or enclave on a computer's processor, separate from the main operating system. It stores and processes data with complete integrity and protects data from any possible tampering from the outside. Computation within a TEE is totally invisible from the outside.
How does a TEE protect data privacy?
Litentry provides these closed environments or enclaves (TEEs) in which only the user has control over their data and sharing authorizations. Besides the specific hardware design of a TEE, any input and output, such as a user's sensitive account relationships or their credentials, are encrypted with cryptographic keys.
How does a TEE create trust?
The trusted execution environment is known as a secured machine running a known piece of open source code. Everyone can verify the TEE's functionality and results. It functions as an independent 3th party. Everyone can also verify that the inputs and outputs of a TEE act according to the open source code.
How do you make sure that a TEE can be trusted?
Every TEE goes through an attestation process to ensure the code is running on a genuine and secure TEE from the hardware manufacturer. This process verifies the TEE’s code is untampered with and verifies the dedicated cryptographic key pair of the specific TEE. These keys allow the TEE to sign its own messages as a means of verification that a specific credential was issued by a specific TEE.
How does Litentry use’s TEE’s?
Litentry uses Trusted Execution Enclaves to protect the sensitive relations of identity owner. A user can store & communicate the relationships between their web2 & Web3 accounts safely since it is protected by the TEE and encrypted during communication. Our TEE’s also verify the on-chain information that is related to those accounts as an independent trustworthy observer and help users practice selective disclosure of credentials.
How does the TEE allow for ‘Selective Disclosure’ of credentials?
Since the TEE acts as an independent trustworthy and verifiable observer it can issue claims and credentials about the accounts being stored inside it’s enclave. This middle layer allows the user to manage the amount of information they select to disclose or allows to share. A user might prefer to share the possession of a token but not it’s size or purchase date.

Explore the pillars we build on

Self Sovereign Identity

By using the self-sovereign identity framework we bring full control over what, when & to whom individuals share their personal data. We aim to replace centralized controlling authorities with the trusted anchor of blockchain technology.


We use standardized digital documents called verifiable credentials to prove attributes about an individual. These documents can be independently verified by a third party without revealing the individual's personal information.


Equal opportunity for all: by enabling economic systems in which individuals can participate without revealing their real-world identities, potentially eliminating discrimination & biases, creating a more level playing field.
