RSK Infrastructure Framework Launches Digital Identity Solution rLogin

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - March 8, 2021

rLogin integrates with web and blockchain applications to give users control of their own data and digital identity.

RSK has launched a unified digital identity solution allowing web application developers to integrate blockchain technologies. rLogin is part of the RSK Infrastructure Framework (RIF) suite of tools and is natively compatible with the Bitcoin and Ethereum networks. The feature gives users of any rLogin-enabled application the ability to use their crypto wallets to authenticate and store their data, porting it across different Web 2.0 and Web3 applications as they wish. This is also an opportunity for users to build their own digital reputation without needing to rely on the traditional banking sector or big tech, with the added benefit of being completely in control of how their data is used and managed.

Any application integrating rLogin will benefit from several core features. These include:

  • A front-end capable of interacting with any blockchain wallet that the user chooses, with a pre-designed user experience for registration and login
  • A back-end authenticating users by their wallet addresses, which serves as a Decentralized Identifier (DID)
  • A registration model capable of requesting users for access to data stored in the Data Vault, its user-centric cloud storage
  • Full compatibility with W3C SSI standards: Decentralized Identifiers (DID) and Verifiable Credentials (VC)

While there are some similar services available for Ethereum, RIF is the first to deliver a comprehensive solution for integrating self-sovereign decentralized identity into any application with native compatibility to both Ethereum and Bitcoin (via RSK) rLogin is already integrated with several wallets, including Metamask, Nifty, Liquality, and WalletConnect. More wallet integrations are coming soon.

RIF Identity Product Owner, Milton Berman, states of the rLogin launch:

“rLogin is a huge step towards achieving Self-Sovereign Identity while simplifying the way to interact with the blockchain. We are very excited to see these integrations giving users the flexibility to control their own data and move their crypto assets and reputation across platforms.”

rLogin is free and open-source, so any developer can integrate rLogin into their application using the toolset available on Github. Web application integrators can choose between authentication without a back-end, authentication with a back-end, or authentication requesting user credentials.

RSK invites developers to learn more from the library of supporting documentation via its Developer Portal, and can offer support and assistance from the RIF Identity team via an open Slack channel. Users with any of the compatible wallets (Nifty, Metamask, Liquidity, or WalletConnect) can start using rLogin now, as can RNS Manager and RSK Token Bridge users.
