What is a Verifiable Credential, and Why Does it Matter?

Speaker: Kristina Yasuda, Identity Standards Architect, Microsoft
Date: Tuesday, June 21, 2022
Location: Denver, CO

Description: A verifiable credential (VC) is an assertion with a secret weapon — called a verifiable presentation (VP). VCs and VPs are unique in that they enable users to directly hold and present claims about themselves, issued by many different authorities. This is an important addition to the domain-relative credentials that are presented today as part of federated sign-in or SSO contexts. You may ask — why is that direct presentation important? Pamela Dingle and Kristina Yasuda will talk through how VCs and VPs work, what makes VCs different from common federated credentials, and what VCs could change about how we interact with data in the future.
