SRI International has publicly released their independent review on the use of
cryptography in W3C VCs and DIDs and made some recommendations:

Cryptography Review of W3C Verifiable Credentials Data Model (VCDM) and
Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) Standards and Cryptography Implementation
Recommendations by David Balenson & Nick Genise

It's largely a view from the US NIST cybersecurity standards, which are used
through most of the world, but not everywhere. In any case, it's a valuable
perspective that I hope the VC2WG and DIDWG takes into the next stage of the work.
