First Public Working Draft: Verifiable Credentials Data Model v2.0

Author(s) and publish date


The Verifiable Credentials Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft today for the Verifiable Credentials Data Model v2.0. This specification provides a mechanism to express credentials (driving license, university degree, vaccination documents, etc.) on the Web in a way that is cryptographically secure, privacy respecting, and machine-verifiable.

This First Public Working Group Draft is, essentially, identical to the Verifiable Credentials Data Model v1.1 Recommendation, published by the Working Group in March 2022. It is a starting point for the development of what will become the next major revision of the technology.

The Working Group welcomes comments via the GitHub repository issues.
