Our Solution

The client provides a social identifier, a free web identity credential controlled by the user. We designed and implemented an algorithm (based on research from Stanford University) on Hadoop using PIG, to evaluate the authenticity of an individual’s profile attributes. We also implemented various fraud detection and prevention solutions with viral social features to enable users to leverage their social graph, to add to their assert score.
