To make authentication ubiquitous and effortless for a fluid society.

The world today is overflowing with data.

These data have derived social benefits such as automation and personalization. On the other hand, however, they have increased social problems such as identity theft and invasion of privacy.


To make authentication ubiquitous and effortless for a fluid society.


This is our vision for a better world, where personal and public data are connected in an ideal way.


To be more specific, our eKYC and authentication services are:
1. safer than ever,
2. managed completely under consent of individuals,
3. effortless and intuitive,
4. accessible anytime, anywhere.
These features are the foundation of safer and more convenient social activities.


Just imagine.

You could visit any country with just your smartphone, or even without it. Your passport and vaccination records would be shared on interoperable platforms.

You wouldn’t need to spend hours looking for clothes that fit your shape.


Remote surgery could be possible even on remote rural islands.

No minorities would be left behind.

It is our greatest pleasure to take on this tremendous challenge together with our partners and clients, and to make our vision come true in the near future!
