zkAuth launch: Merging Web2 and Web3 identity solutions

Together with Matter Labs, Three Sigma has achieved a significant leap forward in blockchain technology via zkAuth. This pioneering protocol is specially engineered to transform identity management on the ZK Stack-powered blockchains. Its goal is to connect the current web standard with the decentralized security features of Web 3 technologies.

zkAuth introduces Account Abstraction (AA), which combines the usual Web2 user behavioral patterns with blockchain technology to optimize decentralized online processes. Integrating OpenID Connect (OIDC) standards creates a simplified way of authentication for the transactions made on the blockchain. Hence, they can log in without facing difficulty utilizing the media accounts they are used to.

By using this revolutionary method, individuals can now link their Web2 identities with their Blockchain accounts, helping app developers to integrate Blockchain seamlessly into their already existing apps without the stress of configuring new accounts or dealing with private keys. 

Eduardo Morgado, the Three Sigma CEO, spoke about the importance of this development and said, “Three Sigma is committed to delivering solutions that remove the hassle of using blockchain technology in daily activities. It is great working with Matter Labs in our efforts to change the way identities are managed on blockchain.”

ZkAuth, a well-known technology, has some essential features, i.e., an easy and smooth customer experience, improved business operations for maximum productivity, and improved security and privacy. Another thing that stands out with zkAuth is that it integrates with the zkSync Account Abstraction. 

As a result, the transaction process goes ahead effortlessly, whereas strict security measures are maintained. In addition, the provided solution implements a non-custodial model to enable individuals to have full control of their data without impeding their personal information. The other way boosts the user’s privacy and does away with the risk of storing the data centrally.

Currently, zkAuth comprises two main components: the core smart contract system and a developer SDK companion. Both are close to the final stages of development and will be open-sourced after their launch on the testnet. The first zkAuth testnet deployment will vividly demonstrate the integration of Clave smart accounts, thus showcasing the protocol’s practical applications and benefits.

As the next stage, the zkAuth wants to be dispensed on an enterprise level and ready for all the blockchains built on the ZK Stack. Thus, the Ethereum blockchain will facilitate a rise in mutual understanding and communication among its participants. In a more detailed form, technical information and a thorough plan will be announced via Three Sigma’s official Twitter in the coming period.

This groundbreaking undertaking constitutes an important landmark in the development of blockchain technology, pointing the way to use further and a more specific way of integrating with the blockchain.
