Multi-Source Identity

  1. Credentials may be too strong a word for some of the documents we treat as identity documents. For example, a note from a parent to a teacher about a child might not be considered a “credential” by most people, but it would qualify in what I’m trying to describe. In the interest of succinctness, I’ll just use it for this post.
  2. I was recently reminded of a paper on Personal Channels that Drummond Reed and I wrote back in 2012. In it we list ten benefits of personal channels. Most of these are relevant to multi-source identity and relationships as envisioned in Sovrin.
  3. Both of the demos in these two videos are real — they are not conceptualizations or mockups, but are using Sovrin’s test network for the DID and verifiable credential exchange.
