Trustworthy customer relationships require trusted identities.

With this vision, we develop software tools that are used for secure interactions between organisations and their customers throughout the entire customer lifecycle. Our software solutions are built on global, open standards such as Verifiable Credentials and OpenID.

Our history

Lissi was founded by neosfer GmbH and Commerzbank AG as in house incubation for innovative approaches to societal challenges. Over the years we did fundamental research, worked on intuitive applications and spoke to customers, regulators, municipalities and the civil society alike. The picture shows our first hackathon in 2019, which lead to the formation of the IDunion research consortia.
