Authenticated Anonymity

In the digital world, the concept of "Authenticated Anonymity" may seem paradoxical. Can authentication truly coexist with anonymity? At CodeB, we've turned this paradox into a reality.

Anonymity, particularly sender anonymity, has become a crucial requirement for many privacy-focused applications. However, the potential misuse of anonymity for malicious activities cannot be ignored. To address this, CodeB has developed protocols for authenticated anonymous communication channels, a feature we've aptly named "Authenticated Anonymity".

In these channels, the client can authenticate with the Group SSI (Self-Sovereign Identity), while the latter can only authenticate the fact that an address belongs to one of the qualified members of a defined group. It's a delicate balance between maintaining anonymity and ensuring authentication.

Use Cases

  1. Supplier Pre-Negotiations: Enable a group of suppliers to pre-negotiate without revealing their identities. It's negotiation with a veil of anonymity.
     

  2. GDPR Critical Customer Information Requests: Facilitate requests for GDPR critical customer information for a group of defined business partners. It's data access with respect for privacy.
     

  3. Fraud Mitigation Service: "Authenticated Anonymity" is an essential building block of our Fraud Mitigation Service. It's security with a touch of anonymity.
     

  4. Healthcare: In a healthcare setting, authenticated anonymity could be used to protect patient identities while allowing medical professionals to access necessary health data for treatment or research purposes.
     

  5. Whistleblower Platforms: Whistleblower platforms could use authenticated anonymity to protect the identities of individuals reporting unethical or illegal activities, while still verifying that the information is coming from a credible source within the organization.
     

  6. Online Voting Systems: In online voting systems, authenticated anonymity could ensure that each vote is tied to a verified individual, while keeping the voter's identity anonymous to maintain the integrity of the voting process.
     

  7. Peer Review Processes: In academic or professional peer review processes, authenticated anonymity could be used to ensure that reviewers are qualified experts in the field, while keeping their identities hidden to prevent bias in the review process.
     

  8. Anonymous Surveys: For sensitive surveys or feedback systems, authenticated anonymity could verify that responses are from valid participants, while keeping individual responses anonymous to encourage honest feedback.
     

  9. Cybersecurity: In cybersecurity, authenticated anonymity could be used in systems to allow for secure, anonymous reporting of potential security threats or breaches.
     

  10. Financial Transactions: In certain financial transactions, authenticated anonymity could allow for secure, verified transactions while protecting the identities of the parties involved, such as in the case of large donations to charitable organizations.
