Subject: Proposal: New DIF Working Group: InterCredential

The DIF steering committees have requested broad feedback related to the potential formation of a new DIF Working Group called InterCredential:
- The InterCredential specifications represent a layered, interoperable, unified credential architecture reference model for the Internet.
- The InterCredential-ARM is a unified, layered specification for designing and implementing interoperable credentials for both verifiable as well as unverifiable data for use in centralized and decentralized systems.
- The Working Group focus is: credential creation and interoperability based on a layered credential architecture reference model.

The DIF steering committees have asked the founding members to:
Undertake discussions with WG Chairs of existing groups and associate organizations where specifications have or are being developed to confirm if this is within their WG scope (ie. would constitute a work item under that banner) or is clearly defined as a unique charter. The following WG's identified are:
- Claims and Credentials at DIF,
- DIDComm at DIF,
- ToIP Architecture Task Force, and
- W3C CCG (VC WG) there is a degree of alignment for elements of this [InterCredential] WG proposal in all of these areas.

A copy of the InterCredential draft charter can be found here:

Please provide your feedback over the next couple weeks - ideally before March 15, 2023.  Help us refine this draft charter and to make this WG a reality.

Best regards,
