>    IMO, a DID user agent is not a well-defined term. The community distinguishes between different types of agents. These agents are either controlled by an entity, or act on behalf of the entity, run in different locations and have certain capabilities, e.g., routing messages between entities, answering to credentials presentation requests on behalf of entities. I assume you are referring to an agent that runs on a mobile phone or in the browser (e.g., plugin/extension) that is controlled by an entity.

The DID spec is now being formalized in a dedicated W3C DID WG. HL Aries/DIF is working on protocols that allows them to interoperate on the messaging level. The following is a non-exhaustive list of public edge agents available on Android/ iOS:

This is NOT an exhaustive list of agent technologies; others on the the list should chime in with other things, too.
