Hello All,

I have been looking around for some clarity on this but have not yet found
anything concrete.

Imagine a scenario where we have a user, who wants to grant access to their
DID Doc to a third party service.

The first step is they prove they are the owner via a signature or some
decryption with the secret key.

After this point, what are the options/flows which are likely to happen.

   - The service is not the DID method owner - how would it prove they have
   permission to write to the DID doc?
   - What sorts of protections (if any) will be in place for users who
   grant access voluntarily but to malicious services?
