Verifiable Credentials and Decentralized Identifiers with DIDKit

We present DIDKit, a toolkit for Verifiable Credentials and Decentralized Identifiers, implemented in Rust. This includes an introduction to Verifiable Credentials ("VCs"), a W3C Recommendation; to Decentralized Identifiers ("DIDs"), a Proposed W3C Recommendation; and to the signing formats used with these: JSON Web Signatures (JWS) and Linked Data Proofs. Charles Lehner will demo using DIDKit to issue, present and verify verifiable credentials using DIDs based on cryptographic keypairs. Charles is joined by Juan Caballero (@bumblefudge) for the Q&A.
