The Verifiable Credentials Working Group has proposed corrections to the W3C Recommendation of Verifiable Credentials Data Model v1.1. Credentials is a part of our daily lives; driver’s licenses are used to assert that we are capable of operating a motor vehicle, university degrees can be used to assert our level of education, and government-issued passports enable us to travel between countries. This specification provides a mechanism to express these sorts of credentials on the Web in a way that is cryptographically secure, privacy-respecting, and machine-verifiable.
Comments, including implementation experience, are welcome via GitHub through 18 January 2022.
