Santander
Digital Trust Hackathon

21st - 22nd March 2020 London, UK

Coding to Protect Personal Data

To achieve this goal, Santander is calling on developers, fintech experts, data scientists, and digital trust/identity experts to join and collaborate with its internal teams to create powerful products that support privacy, protect data, and help individuals and businesses prosper.

Build on the Digital Trust APIs

To support the development of your solution, you'll be given access to the following:

Santander is on a mission to leverage the power of its APIs to develop cutting-edge digital trust solutions for its customers during this 24-hour hack!

  • Santander Labs Sandbox APIs
  • Ready to use Anonymised Customer Data Sets

Hackathon challenge

At the customer’s request, the bank confirms the client’s name and other basic identifying information.


VERIFYING IDENTITY 

At the customer’s request, the bank confirms the individual’s authority to act on behalf of another entity or individual.


•This person is the CFO of company x.
They have the authority to open accounts.

•This person can sign legal agreements on behalf of organization y.

•This person really works in the call center for company z.

•This person really is in accounts receivable for company xyz and that really is their wire instructions. 


This API is not currently available. We are looking for partners to build on the data sources and test the user flow.

VERIFYING AUTHORITY

At the customer’s request, the bank shares and confirms extensive amounts of information.

For example, a customer applying for a car loan with a different entity might ask their primary bank to share detailed information. This prevents data loss and increases confidence for the new loan originator. 

SHARING VERIFIED DATA

At the customer’s request, the bank shares summary facts without disclosing private data. For example, this person is old enough to buy alcohol – but date of birth will not be disclosed.

VALIDATING SUMMARY FACTS

Built on top of OpenID and focused on Customer Privacy, this API it's a proposal for a new Digital Identity standard for Verified Data Sharing Services.

Plaid - API
