Verifiable Credentials Overview

W3C, Jun 11, 2024

As the summary states, " The Verifiable Credentials Working Group has just published a Working Group Note of Verifiable Credentials Overview." It's basically a three-part model: you have an issuer, a holder, and a verifier. There are two major approaches: "enveloping proofs or embedded proofs. In both cases, a proof cryptographically secures a Credential (for example, using digital signatures). In the enveloping case, the proof wraps around the Credential, whereas embedded proofs are included in the serialization, alongside the Credential itself. "
