VIDconnect helps entities interact with users by requesting credentials with simple integration. It is compatible, for example, with the well-known OpenID protocol.
Additionally, VIDconnect implements the OpenID Connect SIOP v2 protocol that is used to exchange credentials, for instance with VIDwallet.
VIDconnect supports different flows for different scenarios, such as the same device flow (app to app on the same device) and the cross-device flow (e.g., browser to app), and implements the OpenID connect SIOP flow detailed in the OpenID Connect User Authentication Flow section.
VIDconnect requires the integration of the service, whereas VIDverfier is a standalone tool able to receive and verify credentials. With VIDverifier, anybody - users and companies - can verify credentials. VIDverifier is a web-based platform that allows individuals and organizations to verify the authenticity and validity of credentials by simply performing an authentication flow toward VIDverifier.
