The UK government designed some real use cases for use with its Verify 
FIM system. One of the best use cases was buying a car parking permit 
online as this required assertions for your name, address, car ownership 
and payment.

We built a demo of this using FIM assertions and our attribute 
aggregation service and published this at the ARES conference in 2013 
(how time flies!)

Now we are building a demo that uses VCs instead.

The latest version of the official use case can be found here


As you can see by 2017 it has been watered down somewhat, in that it no 
longer checks your car ownership, only your name and address from the 
Verify service. This is because the government does not have a proper 
attribute aggregation service! (It should have taken ours)

Of course, once we transition to VCs, attribute aggregation should come 
for free.
