Your answers on KYC procedures with the identity wallet

What is the KYC procedure?

The KYC (Know Your Customer) procedure consists of verifying the identity and integrity of customers. Initially imposed by financial and banking legislation, the KYC procedure enables us to actively combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

How reliable is my customer's identity?

Partnering with several digital identity players, the Archipels wallet offers users several ways to be identified. Each wallet holder is identified, and can choose whether or not to share his or her identity with a verifier, depending on the use case.

For each KYC procedure, an individual will have to generate the requested documents again?

No, the general idea behind the identity wallet is to simplify and secure the presentation of information. In the case of the wallet, once credentials have been generated, an individual can present them to third parties of his or her choice, without having to regenerate them. They have their own reusable credentials within their cloud wallet.

What documents can be requested as part of a KYC process?

On this page we present some of the most commonly used attestations in KYC procedures, but depending on your needs and the legal framework, we can add or remove presentation requests of your choice.
