DSR wins 3 bids from the Government of British Columbia

January 17th, 2023

DSR Corporation is excited to announce we have won a series of “Code With Us” opportunities from the Government of British Columbia (CAN).  We are proud to be chosen by the BC Government, a pioneer in the early adoption and usage of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) technologies, to assist them in their continuous development of an SSI platform and Hyperledger Indy and Aries. DSR was awarded three separate bids due to our expertise in SSI and previous contributions to the Hyperledger Indy and Aries. 

The goal of these projects is to transition some activities and support away from the Indy SDK and to the upgraded Indy VDR for all of the BC Governments Hyperledger deployments. The BC Government is transitioning away from the Indy SDK and towards the Indy VDR, which will allow for easier use and better maintenance of the platform. The specific opportunities consist of upgrading the Indy Test automation repository to use Indy VDR for testing Indy Plenum and Indy Node, upgrading the VON Network repository to use Indy VDR and implementing a version of the Indy CLI based on the Hyperledger Indy & Aries shared components. Transitioning the Government of British Columbia’s deployment activities away from Indy SDK and into Indy VDR will give the BC Government a more modern system, which is easier to use and maintain.  

We are very excited to continue our contribution to Hyperledger Indy and open-source Self-Sovereign Identity technologies as a whole. These opportunities allow us to upgrade the Hyperledger Indy platform by using the most up-to-date components, which will lead to better system maintenance in the future. 

DSR is an industry leader in decentralized systems and Self-Sovereign Identity technologies. DSR was a primary contributor to Hyperledger Indy, a ready-to-use Self-Sovereign Identity framework and platform, consisting of tools, libraries and components for providing independent digital identities rooted on a decentralized network. DSR is also a primary contributor to Hyperledger Aries, a set of interoperable specifications and RFCs, as well as multiple frameworks implementing these specifications. We believe that the decentralized web 3.0 world will give everyone more control over their data, increase security, boost privacy regulations like GDPR, and help support government initiatives for regulators and consumers alike, while delivering an overall better experience.
