Wow - i really like the OIDC connection there - and the ref to
Mycelia (Imogen was a plenary speaker at MyData 2019)
Connecting DID's to OIDC is a big interest - and I think it will
be one of the make-or-break technologies for SSI, as it will offer
end-consumers an option to shift off of GAFA and onto their own
I'm CC'ing Orie Steele here as well - Balazs has looped in Oliver
Terbu - Orie had reached out looking for implementation volunteers
on the DID-SIOP project. I'm also looping in balll@... as
he and I recently chatted about OIDC integration. I think there
is a very powerful, but still latent, engine of coders ready to
make it happen.
One of the things I love about the MyData group is their
attention to the tension between "Make it Happen/Make it Right" -
DID/OIDC integration is on the "Make it happen" side more than the
"make it perfect" model - and this relates to connecting SSI &
DID technology to classic IAM authorities - it is not "perfect"
because it still relates to the existing IAM infrastructure - but
successful OIDC integration across multiple industries would be a
game-changer for identity, credential and trust tech.
A good reference implementation in production - connecting DIDs
& OpenID would benefit all of us.
Let's talk more!

Very little technical detail in it, but we are pointing to the
same DIF project, and wanting to be as open and collaborative
about implementation as possible.
Tell me if you are interested in a chat about this.

Is anyone interested in connecting DID & VC-based
identity tech with OpenID?
DIF has an active project : https://identity.foundation/did-siop/
If folks are interested in this topic, I would like to
organizing some regional coding efforts to take a
implementation across the finish line.
