Hi All,

Will the v1.1 spec no longer support nesting VCs as in the 1.0 spec?

Subject: Verifiable Credentials v1.1 released for public review

Hi all,

Verifiable Credentials v1.1 has just been released[1] for public review and a W3C Advisory Committee vote:


There are three (fairly boring but important and backwards compatible) substantive changes in this version of the specification:

* Update previous normative references that pointed to RFC3339 for datetime details to now normatively reference the datetime details described in
XMLSCHEMA11-2 which more accurately reflects the usage in examples and libraries.

* Loosen the requirement to use URLs to use URIs in the id property of the credentialStatus and refreshService sections of the data model. Link normatively to the URI specification.

* Loosen normative statements in the zero-knowledge proofs section to enable compliance of new zero-knowledge proof schemes, such as BBS+, that have been created since the v1.0 specification was published as a Recommendation.

The W3C Advisory Committee vote is open until January 18th 2021, which also includes a patent exclusion period (to ensure the specification remains royalty free to view and implement).

The general public is invited to view and comment on the proposed corrections during this time period. Proposed corrections are marked up like so:


Searching for the text "PROPOSED CORRECTION" will show you all of the substantive changes in this version of the specification.

This publication is also a signal to the market that the Verifiable Credentials specification is under regular maintenance and is tracking the realities in the market as it evolves.
