At the invitation of the organizers of DWeb Camp 2022, I delivered a session on the subject of three open standards for decentralized identities.
Decentralized identifiers, verifiable credentials, and decentralized identifier communication were discussed throughout this session as three of the most important developing standards for decentralized identity.
Decentralized Identifiers: I went through a variety of issues in this standard, including how a decentralized identifier (DID) differs from private name spaces and globally controlled registries, what it looks like, the standard components of a DID document, DID specifications, and more.
Verifiable Credentials: In this section, I discussed what verifiable credentials are, how they function, as well as characteristics and benefits such as extensive expressive capacity and a vast array of potential applications.
Decentralized Identifier Communication: It is also known as DIDComm Messaging, and inside it, we are able to have peer-to-peer ownership of the social graph commons. During our presentation on this protocol for decentralized identification, I went through its viability and several uses, in addition to the mechanism behind it.
To that aim, I also discussed ways in which we might integrate many of the aforementioned open standards. In addition, two more standard ideas, the “personal data store” and “object capabilities,” have been offered in the conclusion.
