I’ll also +1 this…

And then point out that notarization is completely different than then audit idea being expressed here, and comes on a very specific set of laws in most parts of the world.

Subject: Re: VC-HTTP API Use Case for Audit / Notary
I strongly suggest that we put it out of scope for the VC HTTP API for at
least the next 6-9 months.

Audit functionality is hugely important, but with current scope and state of VC-HTTP-API I am not seeing it as something that we would want to tackle as part of base VC-HTTP-API implementations on the mesur.io<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmesur.io%2F&data=04%7C01%7Clrosenth%40adobe.com%7Ca0c1132566504c89981708d9408c7c8b%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C637611794466271954%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=kWLehalqirAF552gv39UhY6uCVe3P5cBbRz9ZGzET3w%3D&reserved=0> side for now.

Yes, audit should be a consideration in the VC ecosystem.

However, the diagram you provided doesn't seem to touch the VC HTTP API at
all. Audit seems like it has nothing to do with the VC HTTP API at present,
and we should keep it out of scope until we have the base layer of the API

It's going to be very difficult to argue that auditing is as foundational as
issuing, holding, or verifying.

I strongly suggest that we put it out of scope for the VC HTTP API for at
least the next 6-9 months.
