DID Resolvers and DID JWT


Wednesday 4I

Convener: Pelle Braendgaard

Notes-taker(s): Pelle Braendgaard


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


We talked about the 2 generic DID resolver libraries


- https://github.com/uport-project/did-resolver for JS

- https://github.com/decentralized-identity/universal-resolver for java/docker


Then discussed the did-jwt library which allows you to create standard JWT's and validate them using the did resolver. https://github.com/uport-project/did-jwt


The conversation then morphed into a debate between the current approach to listing public keys https://w3c-ccg.github.io/did-spec/#public-keys and that we could easily use JWK instead.
