DID Specification

Creating a unified decentralized identity ecosystem requires addressing a set of fundamental user needs and technical challenges:

  1. Enabling registration of self-sovereign identifiers that no provider owns or controls.
  2. The ability to lookup and discover identifiers and data across decentralized systems.
  3. Providing a mechanism for users to securely store sensitive identity data, and enabling them to precisely control what is shared with others.
