Announcing the Digital Credentials Protocols Working Group

The OpenID Foundation (OIDF) Specs Council has accepted a proposal to create a new working group as a dedicated home of the OpenID for Verifiable Credentials specs family. The new working group is designated as “Digital Credentials Protocols Working Group” (DCP WG).

The first DCP WG meeting is scheduled for the 31st August 2023 at 4pm CEST in place of the regular SIOP Special Topic Call.

DCP WG Zoom meeting link: Please note that this is a new, dedicated Zoom session for the DCP WG and different from the Connect WG Zoom session.

Co-chairs for the WG will be confirmed at this first meeting. Additionally, a regular meeting time for the DCP WG will be confirmed. The SIOP calls will continue as scheduled after this first DCP WG meeting.

Those new to the OpenID Foundation and interested in participating in the DCP WG, will need to complete a Contribution Agreement. Please note that you do not need to be a member of the Foundation to participate in working groups but membership is encouraged and appreciated.

For those contributors that have a signed Contribution Agreement, if you selected “All Current Work Groups” on your Contribution Agreement, then there is nothing to do. If you specified working groups on Contribution Agreement, such as AB/Connect, then you will need to submit a new Contribution Agreement. You can specify “Digital Credentials Protocols WG” or select “All Current Work Groups”.
