Application: Filling digital documents using multi-tiered user identity models based on decentralized identity (Patent ID: US20240056309A1)

The patent filed by ADOBE Inc. describes a system, method, and computer-readable media for filling in digital documents using user identity models of client devices. The system receives a digital document with a fillable field, retrieves a decentralized identity credential for the client device associated with the document, and modifies the document by filling in the field using the user attribute from the credential. The method involves verifying user attributes, generating privacy-preserving arguments for sensitive information, and interacting with multiple client devices for verification.

The patent also covers the retrieval of verifiable credentials from multi-tier user identity models, submitting requests for additional decentralized identity credentials, and utilizing fuzzy matching algorithms for determining attribute correspondence. The system provides verification indications on the graphical user interface, allows user interactions for editing fillable fields, and ensures privacy by using privacy-preserving arguments. Additionally, the system can modify additional fillable fields based on user interactions, enhancing the overall user experience with digital document filling.
