The mission of the W3C Credentials Community Group is to explore the creation, storage, presentation, verification, and user control of credentials. We focus on a verifiable credential (a set of claims) created by an issuer about a subject—a person, group, or thing—and seek solutions inclusive of approaches such as: self-sovereign identity; presentation of proofs by the bearer; data minimization; and centralized, federated, and decentralized registry and identity systems. Our tasks include drafting and incubating Internet specifications for further standardization and prototyping and testing reference implementations.
On July 7 and 14, 2020, The CCG hosted two sessions where we asked people from inside and outside the community to answer the question, “What’s in a Wallet?” You can review the meeting notes and listen to the audio below:
As you can see, there are a lot of interpretations for what is in a wallet. We hope you find these presentations and perspectives mind-opening and keep in mind the desires of your end users when you develop digital identity wallets.
Welcome to the September Schedule for the Credentials Community Group. We have a great line-up of speakers this month. Got something you are interested in presenting on identity, credentials, security or diversity identity/credential adjacent? Get in touch.
The W3C Credentials Community Group in conjunction with the Digital Verification Community Group are in the process of prioritizing work items. Your responses to the poll will enable us to properly prioritize the work items that will drive the technical work.
