Claims & Credentials WG Today: Universal Wallet, OpenID Meets VCs

Wayne Chang

Hi! My name is Wayne Chang and I'm a chair of the DIF C&C WG. You might not be used to getting mail from this list, but I wanted to remind you about some especially interesting identity discussions. :)

For the DIF Claims & Credentials Working Group, we have a meeting at 3 PM ET today (in about 3 hours). You can find the calendar invite by adding decentralized.identity@... to your shared calendars. I have also included to the connection information at the end of this email. We are encouraging members to continue follow-up discussions on the open C&C mailing list, which you can sign up for by sending an email with any subject and body to

Here's today's exciting agenda:

1. Updates and Announcements (2 mins)

2. Universal Wallet - Orie Steele (15 min presentation, 5 min Q&A)
Why it matters:
We need a standard way to port everything from one wallet to another, no matter which vendor provides the wallet. This is how we free users from lock-in.

3. OpenID Client Bound End-User Assertion - Tobias Looker (15 min presentation, 5 min Q&A)
Why it matters:
For the longest time, the community has wanted to define possible interactions between our credentials and the OpenID Connect tokens, which bring an identity layer to OAuth2. This is a thought-out and specific method towards exactly that.

4. ZKP Blog Post (remainder)
Why it matters:
DIF wants to announce its collaboration on ZKP schemes and intents moving forward. We should agree on the messaging and scope of this today.
