An open-source tool for identity and access management in a self-sovereign era

Switchboard is a first-of-its-kind identity and access management (IAM) tool for users, assets, and application developers in today’s growing self-sovereign approach to digital solutions. Although Energy Web developed Switchboard with a focus on the global energy sector and its foundational Energy Web Chain, Switchboard can be used in any sector and on any blockchain-based or non-blockchain digital solution.

As a full IAM solution, Switchboard leverages self-sovereign identities (SSIs), decentralized identifiers (DIDs), and verifiable claims (VCs) for authentication, authorization (such as for role-based access management in applications), and accounting (for logging user activity history). 

For users, Switchboard enables them to manage their core identity and associated VCs, their assets (such as solar panels, thermostats, electric vehicles, and batteries), and their enrollment in various applications and digital services (such as messaging and storage). 

For application developers, Switchboard enables them to define user roles and associated permissions, authorize users and assets, and log user operations.

The alpha version of EW Switchboard is available now.
