Hi all,

We've hit another milestone.

I've sent the request for informal review by the W3C Advisory Committee
off as of a couple of minutes ago (note that if you aren't a W3C member,
you will not be able to get to the link below):


Great job to everyone that has helped us get here! :)

Full text of the request for those that don't have access follows.


This is an *informal* request to review the Verifiable Claims Working
Group charter. This charter is NOT under W3C Membership review yet.

In short, the work is about expressing and exchanging cryptographically
verifiable proofs of age, driver's licenses, passports, and
educational/professional qualifications via the Web.

We are sharing this charter now because a few of us that have been
working on this charter (Manu Sporny, Shane McCarron, and David Ezell)
will be at the W3C AC Meeting in Cambridge next week and would like to
discuss it with you.

An Editor's Draft of the Verifiable Claims WG Charter can be found here:

The Use Cases associated with the charter can be found here:

There is a nascent FAQ that can be found here:

Please review the charter if this work seems like it may be interesting
to your organization and send comments to:


For those of you that will be at the Advisory Committee meeting next
week, pull me, Shane, or David Ezell aside and we'd be happy to answer
any questions you may have about the charter.
