Hello Everyone,

I hope you can join us in September for DHS SVIP’s inaugural (Virtual) Demo Week.
Registration is free and everyone is welcome!

Full agenda and link to register can be found @ https://www.dhs.gov/science-and-technology/svip-demo-week

Of relevance to the DID/VC Ecosystem:

  *   Our DID/VC ecosystem companies will featured on 15 September:
     *   Transmute's work to date with CBP and steel importers sought to tackle pervasive trade barriers, including fragmented paper-based processes, non-standard data formats, unknown upstream actors, and siloed technical systems. In its next phase, Transmute will equip CBP and other partner government agencies with actionable data sooner about in-bound steel products and e-commerce shipments including standards-based “verifiable” trade data about businesses in the supply chain, product origins, and shipment documents.
     *   Mavennet is developing a platform called Neoflow to trace Canada to U.S. cross-border movements of oil and gas. Digital credentials created by Neoflow will allow the industry to securely exchange pre-arrival data and share the intent to transit or import oil and gas products in real time.
     *   Mesur.io's Open Food Trust™ platform facilitates visibility into the food supply chain using open data standards, rather than proprietary data formats, without treating the farmer like a commodity. The platform brings traceability, field conditions, and food risks together in one place so that the farmer, food processors, and global leaders in food delivery can access their data, record the information they need, and share that data securely with appropriate regulatory agencies.
     *   Danube Tech is collaborating with other companies on implementing a digital version of the U.S. Permanent Resident Card, using modern decentralized identity technologies such as decentralized identifiers and verifiable credentials. Danube Tech is especially interested in interoperability to avoid vendor lock-in and to connect different use cases, industries, and jurisdictions.
     *   Digital Bazaar’s Interoperable Identity and Credential Life-cycle Management project is focusing on Red Teaming of the Veres™ decentralized identity ecosystem, including the Veres™ Issuer, Verifier, Wallet, and Veres One (a Decentralized Identifier Network), in preparation for production deployments to government and the private sector including citizenship and age verification use cases.
     *   Securekey is developing an interoperable system based on World Wide Consortium (W3C) standards that allows individuals to safely proof their identity to and exchange their identity attributes with various authorized organizations. The system provides a privacy enhanced data exchange with consented transactions by the user, a secure user agent, transaction auditing capabilities, and offers a standards-based interoperable implementation that supports integration with the competitive marketplace.
     *   MATTR is extending earlier work on appointment and visa credentials and digital vaccination certificates, now focusing on building generalized capabilities to support the issuance of any type of verifiable credentials in the context of the USCIS environment. MATTR's project focuses on inclusion of credentials in paper-based documents, privacy respecting feature sets, techniques to support notarization scenarios (including privacy masking), solutions for wallet authentication, and expression of assurance levels during credential presentation.
  *   Closing Panel session, moderated by Heather Vescent, will be on “Choice and Global Interoperability”
     *   Olivier Bringer; Head of Unit, Next Generation Internet, European Commission
     *   Tim Bouma; Senior Policy Analyst, Treasury Board Secretariat, Canadian Government
     *   Anil John; DHS S&T SVIP Technical Director, U.S. Government

S&T SVIP reaches out to innovation communities across the nation and around the world to harness the commercial R&D ecosystem for technologies with government applications and to co-invest in and accelerate technology transition-to-market.

SVIP is designed to lower the barriers of entry for early stage startups to engage with DHS and for DHS to rapidly contract to have startups incorporate DHS’s requirements into their commercial products. We offer U.S. and international start-ups up to $2M in nondilutive funding over 24 months to carry out prototype projects and possibly transition successful projects to production. Learn more about how to discover opportunities to adapt, develop, and commercialize your technologies in support of DHS missions!
