zkMe Integrates User Authentication Oracle with Aptos to Enhance User Security and Identity

Today, we’re delighted to announce the integration of zkMe’s identity solutions with the Aptos blockchain. As a result, the Aptos Foundation will leverage zkMe to provide an accessible and straightforward way for users to verify identities on-chain while maintaining their confidentiality.

Aptos is an independent upgradeable Layer-1 blockchain platform focused on safety and scalability, boasting a dynamic ecosystem of more than 200 launched projects. Since its Mainnet launch, Aptos witnessed over 300 million transactions, with more than 7 million addresses created and achieving a real-world time-to-finality (TTF) of less than one second.

Known for its innovative approach to identity verification, zkMe utilizes a protocol that ensures personal data and personally identifiable information (PII) is used only as a decentralized input and remains undisclosed to third parties entirely. The zkMe identity oracle also allows cross-chain verifications to enable interoperability with other blockchains, allowing for easy client onboarding. At the center of it all: user authentication and identity protection.

With this partnership, zkMe’s identity oracle will be integrated into the Aptos ecosystem and will be automatically available to all developers and creators building on Aptos.

The Head of Ecosystem & Grants at Aptos Foundation, Bashar Lazaar, highlighted the alignment of vision between the two entities stating; “zkMe is setting a new standard for identity protection and user authentication. Their vision for a decentralized, secure internet is one we absolutely share. This integration will continue to help the Aptos Foundation to provide a safe environment for users to embrace and expand what’s possible on Web3 ”

The native integration ensures the privacy and security of Aptos user identities by leveraging zkMe’s pioneering use of ZKPs (zero-knowledge proofs), while also ensuring compliance with increasing financial regulations. By transforming how user identities are verified and managed on Aptos, users will have full control over their data while still gaining access to applications. Furthermore, ecosystem developers will benefit from stronger protections against fraud and abuse which is becoming increasingly topical throughout the industry.

“The Aptos blockchain represents everything we believe in: security, decentralization, and interoperability. We couldn’t be more excited to lend our oracle to strengthen the already impressive security underpinning Aptos’ active and growing ecosystem”

- Alex Scheer, Founder and CEO of zkMe.

zkMe has been engineered specifically to meet the current regulatory and data challenges facing crypto, with a core philosophy of providing identity infrastructure that is private-by-design, secure-by-design and decentralized-by-design.

We are excited to work closely with the Aptos Foundation team to realize the full potential of privacy-preserving identity on web3. Together, we hope to pave the way for a wave of decentralized applications that empower users while respecting their digital rights.
