2. Services

a)   General
WalliD is a blockchain-based protocol that uses digital certificates and related digital documentation to enable the encryption and storage of your identification documents in an digital wallet and the sharing of your identification with third parties.

In order to have access to the Services, you must have an digital wallet. If you do not have an digital wallet, you may create one using MetaMask plug in. For more information about MetaMask, please visit https://metamask.io/terms.html.
WalliD will allow you to:
i. Choose the digital wallet address in which you want to store your identification document.
ii. Choose the identification document that you want to encrypt and store in your digital wallet.
iii. Extract the data of your identification document. Depending on the type of identification document you select, to enable the extraction of the identification data and digital certificate from your identification document you may need to install ImportiD, a desktop application developed by WalliD, or other third parties’ applications which enable identification and access management solutions.
iv. Encrypt the data extracted from your identification document.
v. Store your encrypted identification document in the blockchain.
vi. Have access to your identification document stored in your digital wallet.vii. Share your identification document with third parties online, enabling you to enter into transactions in a safe manner.

b)   ImportiD Application
ImportiD is a desktop app developed by WalliD to extract identification attributes and the digital certificates from your identification document.
While using ImportiD you may choose the type of data you want to extract from your identification document (e.g. identification data, address data, or both). You will also be required to insert the digital wallet address in which you want to store your data.

In order to complete the extraction of your identification document, you will be required to insert the credentials attributed to your identification document by the issuing entity.

With the successful extraction of your identification data, ImportiD will structure the data extracted, compiling it into a JSON file and dividing it in “blocks” of data. When the compilation of the data is completed, you will be required to sign your digital wallet with your digital certificate private key, and further encrypt all the data with your digital wallet public key.
ImportiD will then request your permission to send the encrypted data to WalliD’s website, allowing you to continue the process of storing your identification in your digital wallet.

c)   Storing of your data
When your identification data is pasted from ImportiD (or other third-party application) to WalliD, your digital wallet private key will be required to complete the process of storing your data.

When you click on the “Store your ID” button in WalliD, your identification data t will be encrypted by WalliD, using a WalliD digital wallet address.

i. The blocks of your identification data, first encrypted by you with your digital wallet public key and afterwards encrypted with WalliD key, are sent to WalliD’s backend services.
ii. The Relayer Service on WalliD’s backend is called, which triggers the creation of a pointer that links each blockchain transaction to the WalliD digital wallet address (and not to your digital wallet address).
iii. The StoreiD database stores the digital certificate of your identification document, a pointer to your digital wallet address and your wallet signature. This data is encrypted with the public key of your digital wallet. Please note that depending on the type of your identification document, the database that stores this information may not be the StoreiD database, but a database managed and controlled by a third-party.
iv. The attributes of your identification document (“User ID attributes”) are stored on the blockchain associated to the pointer generated within WalliD’s Relayer Service.
