Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:


DID Resolution is the process of obtaining the DID Document of a DID, for the purpose of interacting with the DID subject in a trusted manner. The most important parts of a DID Document are public keys and service endpoints.


At the Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF), we've been working on the Universal Resolver, which is an implementation of multiple DID methods: https://uniresolver.io/


Within the W3C DID standardization process, we are planning to have a document that defines the details of DID Resolution (currently a skeleton document): https://w3c-ccg.github.io/did-resolution/


There are several technical details to consider when performing DID Resolution: https://github.com/WebOfTrustInfo/rwot7/blob/master/topics-and-advance-readings/did-resolution-topics.md


Also, we are now working on a Universal Registar tool that can create, update, and revoke DIDs across different DID methods: https://uniregistrar.io/
