March 26, 2024 – Ann Arbor, Michigan and Zurich, Switzerland – Leading self-sovereign identity technology provider, PassiveBolt, and LEGIC Identsystems, a global leader in secure authentication, access management and IoT, are excited to announce their collaboration and showcase at the International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC West 2024, Booth 18019), happening April 9th to 11th in Las Vegas, Nevada. This showcase marks a significant step forward in the application of SSI technology across various industries, beginning with an innovative approach to EV charging stations.

The collaboration's first demonstration is the use of SSI technology in activating EV charging stations through verifiable credentials in digital identity wallets.
