The Blockpass Identity Lab 6 Months On – Research Focus and Goals

In September 2018, Blockpass and Edinburgh Napier University celebrated the launch of the Blockpass Identity Lab (BIL) – an endeavour dedicated to conducting research and development around cryptography and blockchain technology intended to lead to groundbreaking applications for use in identity solutions.

Located in the Merchiston Campus of Edinburgh Napier University, the lab currently sees a team of PhD students led by Liam Bell, Research Fellow and Lab Coordinator, who are working on a number of areas that are intended to provide key possibilities for the Blockpass Mobile Application as well as future Blockpass products.

The main application of the research carried out at the BIL is how it can transform identity and verification techniques – specifically how blockchain technology and cryptography can protect personal data from the typical threats it comes up against today with online hackers and malicious actors. Combined with this, the technology is also intended to eventually provide full privacy and control of data to the user, rather than to companies as is common in the current models.
