VREM Network

VREM Network is dedicated to building a global decentralized digital vault based on a user's unique ID and biometrics. The core of VREM is to provide standardized security for "Mnemonic," which consists of two main components: a digital identity network focused on anonymity, a fundamental concept of decentralization based on biometric proof, and a digital currency, VREM, operating in legally permissible areas.

The design intent of this network is to enable users who have undergone the highest level of biometric verification to access the digital vault through quorum authentication. The key concept within this network is "CI (Connecting Information)” free authentication, proving ownership without requiring associated user information. Once implemented, individuals can confirm they are the owners of the Mnemonic keys securely stored within the HSM (Hardware Security Module) without revealing their actual identity.

By applying the open-source SDK provided by VREM, Web3.0 wallet service operators participating in the ecosystem can create, manage, and recover Mnemonics most securely using only the user's facial recognition and unique ID, thereby reducing technical barriers in participating and operating within Web3.0. VREM is advancing a biometric authentication distribution and key management system as a Web3.0 cryptographic base infrastructure in collaboration with top domestic and international security partners, targeting all Web3.0 users.

The whitepaper explores the motivations and current status behind the project's execution, focusing on solutions that allow anyone to easily enter Web3.0 by applying strong physical security devices and key management services. It is written with maximum reference to related content through global top-tier security partners Fortanix, and back-end and biometric authentication top-tier partners Scare and Secucen.

VREM Protocol

At the heart of VREM is the principle of decentralization. While the power of the VREM protocol is immense, under centralized control, it poses a risk of potential illicit use. Breaches of trust in digital services are all too common. Therefore, to ensure orderly and proper use of the VREM protocol, the ecosystem expansion, technological development, and governance must be transparent, verifiable, and crucially, decentralized.

Particularly, decentralized community governance is critical in aligning individuals with the protocol. This section focuses on the decentralization of key management within the VREM ecosystem. The VREM protocol is designed to eliminate single points of failure by decentralizing and distributing HSM (Hardware Security Module) servers and biometric servers regionally or nationally, adhering to biometric guidelines and standards.

The objectives for the protocol’s decentralization are as follows

  1. Providing SDK support to ecosystem partners for integration with the VREM protocol.
  2. Enabling usage without reliance or trust in a central entity, including the capability to independently operate decentralized operations and off-chain infrastructure components.
  3. Decentralized deployment and stable operation of HSM and biometric servers, as well as the quorum committee.
  4. All components of the protocol are either open-sourced or planned to be open-sourced.
  5. Authentication without the need for CI (Connecting Information) values, allowing users to verify asset ownership without disclosing specific details.
  6. Ongoing participation of VREM eco-partners in contributing to the protocol and expanding the user base for Mnemonic backup.

Digital Vault

The digital vault is a biometric authentication-based personal vault solution that backs up and manages Mnemonics through an eco-partner app integrated with VREM SDK. The digital vault protects personal information with zero-knowledge proof that does not require CI values and connects users for online verification of their identity. The solution provided by the VREM protocol, including eco-partner wallet applications, allows for the verification of an authenticated self-state, all while preserving personal information through zero-knowledge proof. A digital vault makes it easy to manage and store Mnemonics after user authentication, which will lower the barrier to entry for users into Web3.0.
