Unum ID is the sharified identity™ network. Our tech allows companies to securely access and share verified identity data, with full user consent. You can use Unum ID to enable:
- Passwordless Auth: Instant multi-factor authentication, using your mobile app. No passwords or other shared secrets! (This is Unum ID within your company.)
- Sharified Identity: A marketplace for verified identity data, enabling instant onboarding and more. Data recipients pay data providers for access. (This is Unum ID across multiple companies.)
These docs provide detailed, technical information about how to deploy and use Unum ID tech. We recommend starting starting with the Introduction sections, but feel free to dive into the Components sections for code level details.
Below is an annotated table of contents, which offers a sneak peek of each section.

- Architecture: overview of Unum ID components and how they interact with each other and our Identity Engine cloud.
- Deployment Overview: conceptual overview of deploying all Unum ID components.
- Privacy and Security: the unparalled benefits of our Encrypted Domain approach.
