Developers can easily search and read the writes to Indicio’s Network ledgers

Indicio.tech, which delivers decentralized identity tools and business support services for an array of global clients, today announced that it has adopted IndyScan for use across its Networks.

IndyScan makes it possible for developers to quickly search and read the various writes to distributed ledgers with a user-friendly front-end and easy-to-use ‘search’ function. While ledgers, such as the Indicio Networks, are public and readable by anyone, they previously required special code to make it possible to download, access, and then read the transactions. IndyScan provides that service, deployed to monitor the networks.

“IndyScan is an example of the wealth of technology available from the open source community propelling decentralized identity forward,” said Ken Ebert, CTO of Indicio. “This means developers can speed up the process of checking for bugs, verifying writes, and reusing existing writes, which shortens development time and enhances interoperability. With IndyScan, developers can quickly read what they are actually putting on identity network ledgers.”

IndyScan is the latest addition to an expanding suite of tools that enhance the operation of decentralized identity networks. In September, Indico launched and open sourced its Indy Monitoring tools, which provide enterprise-grade monitoring capabilities to identify issues and automatically alert network administrators before problems become outages.

“Indicio is committed to open standards and the communities that support them.” said Heather C. Dahl, CEO, Indicio.tech. “The future of decentralized identity is open. And that’s why we are investing in business critical tools and contributing them to the open-source community. We all win by making decentralized identity easier to use and easier to adopt.”

Developers and DevOps teams interested in learning more about IndyScan, first created and open sourced by Patrik Stas, can get started here.

Indicio also offers workshops and training on the latest in open source tools including IndyScan, decentralized identity network node operation, and fundamentals of decentralized identity. Please review Training Packages at Indicio.tech for the latest information on training and workshops.
