W3C Invites Implementations of Verifiable Credentials Data Model 1.0

March 28th, 2019

The Verifiable Claims Working Group invites implementations of Verifiable Credentials Data Model 1.0 Candidate Recommendation. Credentials are 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.
