The vision of DIDAS (Digital Identity and Data Sovereignty Association) is to enable the digital future in a wide range of industries and use cases where individuals, businesses, professionals, government agencies, communities and even connected devices are able to easily exchange identity and related proprietary data electronically while preserving data ownership and privacy.
Our logo is modelled on the traditional Swiss hand gesture from the year 1291, still used today for voting at the “Landsgemeinde”, for admission to a public office and other official occasions, the so called Rütlischwur. It reflects our commitment to serve the good of the Swiss Federation and adhere to the key values of Switzerland – independence, openness, pursuit of togetherness while respecting differences.
DIDAS is a non-profit organization based in the Canton of Zug, Switzerland. Our multi-stakeholder ecosystem is funded by the passionate and financial support of our members, experts and partners. We have enshrined in our principles to be sustainably funded by economically independent organizations. We are a neutral group of companies, experts, individuals, policy makers and researchers to create foundations for the digitization of everyday processes and interactions in Switzerland based on the principles of Self-Sovereign Identity and the corresponding new standards and technologies.
