- Create digital identities
- Collect, store and enable the verification of attributes
- Connect securely peer-to-peer and/or directly with organisations
- Share data with explicit consent (user asserted terms and conditions) = minutes, hours, date or duration

Key Products / Services / Sectors (USPs)
Meeco is a Platform comprising of an engagement layer, data store, consent engine and a range of mini apps to store, generate insight and exchange personal data. Meeco is architected as an API driven platform with interfaces that can be used by consumer apps, or by other systems to integrate with Meeco and deliver an eco-system for life management.
Meeco offers a wide range of Products that make up the Platform:
Data Vault – Meeco’s data vault is a floexible API accessible key value store with categorisation for semantic interpretation. The vault encrypts the data values at rest as well as in transit for security. Each data item and slot are individually addressable and can be referenced via a pairwise pseudonymous identifier for protected sharing.
Attribute Wallet – Meeco enables verified attributes to be shared with a user, usually by the issuer or verifier, wbich can then be used in journeys by the user in future transactions.
3rd Party Integrations – Meeco connects with external parties via OAuth2 or OpenID Connect (or a middleware connector) to allow external data to be captured or verified in Meeco, and then shared in Meeco’s consent transactions. 3rd Party integrations include social networks, financial transaction, health, IoT and fitness data. 3rd Party identity providers can also be incorporated. Through this range of 3rd Party integrations, users can begin to collect and store data to validate their own user-asserted credit score or eligibility for access to a range of services that require authorisation or authentication.
Connections – Meeco connections enable trust relationships to be established between parties and for different levels of assurance. Connections can be peer-2-peer, or direct to an organisation. Connections enable data to be shared directly, with the option for the sender to modify and or delete the shared data.
Data Sharing – The value of data is unlocked by sharing. By enabling sharing in an environment of identified users, Meeco can capture terms and provide a record of consent receipts. Selective sharing also enables progressive disclosure, whereby users are able to select the minimum number of attributes to be shared in exchange for the maximum benefit.
Consent Engine – The Meeco consent engine records terms and can enforce simple rules (such as duration and on-sharing in the system), as well as provide a receipt of consent. Permissions enable data to be shared for minutes, hours, till a set-date or for the term of a product of service. Permissions can be edited before, during or after data is shared.
Permission Dashboard – The Permission dashboard is a user dashboard for the consent engine, allowing them to view and control their data’s use. Users are able to see what attributes have been shared with other people or organisations, together with the permissions set.
Attachments – Create Notes and add Attachments in a range of file formats. Scan documents or attach images directly from phone library. Save important documents including passport, driver’s license, e-identity cards. Attach letters of authority, certificates of incorporation or store boarding pass.
Immutable Personal Chain – All events and interactions in Meeco are recorded as immutable events for the identity, providing a personal chain of behaviour. This chain can be analysed to provide a feed of activities or scored to provide a reputation indicator for a specific purpose. The event chain is a generated data asset for the individual. As every event chain is unique, this provides strong assertion for fraud management, identification, authorisation and authentication. The event chain can record devices in use, shared date, web history, data requests and consent receipts.
Meeco has developed a range of APIs to support the provision of data and the delivery of services. These are provided as RESTful Web services.
The Meeco Platform provides a broad range of features that underpin the unique manner in which it supports customer business and operational models: –
- Flexible Data Model
- Encrypted data storage
- Audit tracking of transactions through classified immutable events
Meeco is also able to provide a structured ‘Proof of Concept” and agile testing environment to prove business and citizen value prior to any significant investment. Production data is hosted in Europe on Azure and protected by GDPR. Both OAuth and Open ID Connect (OIDC) is supported, and as a member of Kantara, Meeco is also working on extending the UMA protocol to handshake with our Consent Ledger.
In May 2018, Meeco published an extensive technical white paper; Zero Knowledge Proofs of the Modern Digital Life: Access, Control, Delegation and Consent of Identity and Personal Data. The paper outlines Meeco’s product road map, including trusted services for Government to enable eIDAS and Identity services using distributed ledger.
