The Lissi wallet supports multiple networks (ledgers)
The Lissi wallet enables end users to manage their identity information and decide when to share information with third parties. The Lissi wallet simplifies the management of credentials, certificates, contacts and other personal data. This information itself is stored on the user’s device and can be presented by the user to the desired third parties. This is useful for different use cases and enables a new way of identity management.
Networks — the backbone of information verification
While the information exchange is conducted via encrypted peer-to-peer connections, a verifier requires a mechanism to verify the truthfulness of the presented information. To allow verifiability, distributed networks are used, which contain information to identify the issuer of identity information. When a credential is issued, it is signed by the issuer enabling asynchronous verifiability for verifiers. While the Lissi team is one of the driving forces of the IDunion network, we also support other networks.
Networks, which are currently supported by the Lissi wallet:
The IDunion test network is operated by the IDunion consortium consisting of private and public partners. You can find more information in our press release about the start of the network or our utility story, which we published in the Trust over IP (ToIP) Foundation.
Sovrin staging, builder and mainnet
The purpose of the Sovrin Ledger is to provide a decentralized global public utility for self-sovereign identity that serves as the foundation for the Sovrin Network. The purpose of the Sovrin Network is to enable the Sovrin Web of Trust — a decentralized global web of trust interconnecting all Identity Owners and the Things they control.
Indicio.tech created the Indicio Network to meet the needs of companies and organizations that want a reliable and robust network to build, test, demo, and launch their identity solutions — all the while supported by a team of engineers with extensive experience in decentralized identity, its architecture, and its use cases.
The different BCovrin Ledgers are for test purposes operated by the province of British Columbia, Canada. The VON (Verifiable Organisation Network) offers great resources for a deep dive.

As already mentioned, the network is only necessary for the verification of presented information and therefore is only one building block of a holistic solution. While the network is important for the issuer and verifier, the user doesn’t want to manually switch the network every time. While we illustrate this information for the user, it’s not necessary to adjust the network. The Lissi wallet automatically recognises the used network and illustrates it on the back side of the credential.
We will keep working continuously on the integration of other networks to ensure the wide usage of the Lissi wallet. Feel free to reach out to us for any feature requests or other input via email@example.com
