[Agenda] W3C Credentials CG Call Tues, Feb 15, 9am PT, 12pm ET, 5pm GMT, 6pm CET / 6AM+1 NZDT

TLDR: Kimberly Linson intro & DIC/VC Cryptography Debrief by David Balenson
from SRI

Kimberly Linson, who has self-nominated for the open CCG co-chair will give
a brief introduction.

Then David Balenson will give a cryptography debrief of the DID and VC
specs. Cryptography used by U.S. government entities in operational systems
must conform to relevant federal government standards and requirements,
including the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and
National Institute of Technology (NIST) standards for use of cryptography.
As part of its in-depth technical due-diligence to enable operational
capabilities for DHS/CBP, DHS/PRIV and DHS/USCIS, the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security’s Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) sponsored
independent nonprofit research center SRI International to conduct a
cryptographic review of the W3C Verifiable Credentials Data Model and W3C
Decentralized Identifiers standards. The review provided constructive
feedback and recommendations for technology developers and W3C standards
developers to increase their level of compliance with federal government
