Subject: Credentials and HTTP-Sig authentication for Solid

Dear Credentials Community,

   I am working on Solid Authentication and Authorization as part of my PhD [0].
A little over a year ago I put together an initial proposal on how to use HTTP-Signature for Solid Authentication [1], following experience I gained implemented this four years ago [2].

Having recently been awarded some funding by  the EU to work on Solid [3] I have been able to put some effort into improving  that document to see how this could tie in with Web Credentials.

Here is an extended version of the HTTP-Signature document I put together today, bringing in ideas that have emerged thinking about this over the past 3 months:

It is work in progress and feedback would be much appreciated.
