Re: Adopting National Identity Card Management Systems with DID Systems

Taner Durson,

Thank you for the fantastic start.

This topic is near and dear to my heart.  In EU there is active effort to explore DID (W3C DID) and eIDAS integration - I believe we have some members of this mailing list who might be able to comment on eIDAS efforts?

Ultimately I think it comes down to relating credentials on different trust infrastructures using the public-key registration as the point of contact.  If the same public key is registered in two systems, that provides a very strong link between the subjects - whether they are individuals or institutions.  If a document can be signed in two contexts, using the same private-key, then there is a strong justification to "combining" or "linking" those records - assuming appropriate consent-receipt management practices are in play.

I would love to hear more about the specific use case you have in mind - i think that many of us are faced with similar use-cases.

Thank you again for the great start!

best,

Transformations or co-depolyment of existing NICMSs that most of them are providing some cryptographic authentication capabilities.
Or developing usage scenarios for a transition phase in order to replace them.
