W3C Invites Implementations of Verifiable Credentials Data Model v2.0

Author(s) and publish date


The Verifiable Credentials Working Group invites implementations of the Verifiable Credentials Data Model v2.0 Candidate Recommendation Snapshot. 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. The group is actively seeking comments and implementation feedback for this specification as issues raised in the document's Github repository by 01 April 2024.

The group has also published a Working Group Note of VC Specifications Directory, which serves as an unofficial directory for all known Verifiable Credential specifications whether they are released by a global standards setting organization, a community group, an open source project, or an individual. Comments are welcome via GitHub issues.
