David,

Thanks. I saw an attribute predicate in an animation (I thought is was a derived attribute); I'm reading about attributes and predicates.

For the example, it might make sense for an issuer to issue electoral districts onto a credential, if we desire the capability for anonymous feedback to elected officials and if the elected officials desire to know that a feedback-provider is from an electoral district.


Best regards,
Adam

Hi Adam

since credentials are signed by issuers, then I do not believe a
repository can implement a derived attribute, as a repository is not
usually a trusted issuer. I suggest the issuer will issue this if
requested to by the subject.

regards

David
