Team Gimly won the KLM, DHL, and Merck/MSD challenge in Odyssey Momentum 2020 – the largest virtual mass collaboration hackathon in the world. Our solution? A physical identifier (eID card) that unlocks the implementation of self-sovereign identity (SSI) and the benefits of privacy preserving exchange of information in an Enterprise and logistics use-case.

Interoperability and inclusion

Full interoperability with any blockchain or SSI provider make the eID cards a true enabler of inclusive innovation for Enterprise and consumers alike. Gimly aims to open up the benefits of secure and privacy preserving exchange of information that SSI brings in any use case where a reliance on personal mobile devices is unfeasible. This includes enterprise settings where employees cannot use their personal devices for authentication, but also settings where not all actors have access to a personal mobile device, such as for children or in low- and middle income countries.

The Problem

To ensure authenticity of a shipment, we need to verify that with every change of custody the actors signing for the change of custoday are authorized to do so from the start until the end of the chain.

The Solution

For every interaction with a shipment, our eID cards let actors login to the ERP system and sign data and transactions using their DID and VCs. This allows for a flexible and secure use of authorization credentials, and possibility to track the chain of custody of among authorized actors

Long Term vision

For a trusted network of supply-chain actors, exchange of goods, data and information can be fully verifiable without loss of control over own data and identity information. For such exchange, every interaction with a shipment will be authenticated by means of digital identities and verifiable certificates issued to those identities.
