VCs 301

November 15th, 2022
Hanging in there? We’ve covered a lot in the past two posts. But don’t worry, we’re in the final stretch. In this installment of our series on Verifiable Credentials we’ll talk about the different implementations of credentials, the lifecycle of a credentials and finally, we’ll cover some of the sexy (to nerds like us, anyway) cryptographic techniques we can use with VCs, such as zero-knowledge proofs. Are you ready? Ok, let’s go!

November 1st, 2022

If you haven’t read that post, we recommend starting there so that everything in this post will make a lot more sense. As we covered in VCs 101, Verifiable Credentials have 9 key attributes:

DIDs 201

October 4th, 2022
In our last post, we covered what DIDs are and more importantly why DIDs exist. Now it’s time to diver a little deeper into how they actually work. An identifier, as we know, is not magical by itself, but DIDs are not just identifiers they also have something called a DID Document. The DID Document is where the power of a DID truly resides.

DIDs 101 with Disco

September 20th, 2022
What do you think of when you hear the word “identity”? Do you think of usernames and passwords? Do you think of your name or your nickname? How about how you express yourself? Maybe it has something to do with your culture, or family, or a particular group you belong to. Ask 100 people and you will get 100 different answers to the question of “what is identity”? No matter how you answer this question, an identity requires at least one “identifier”, if not more. You can think of an identifier as an anchor or a shortcut to an identity. This could be a name, a user ID, your face, your voice, or many other things. Additionally, groups, objects, and even concepts have identifiers. Identifiers are how we let others know we are referring to one thing and not another.
