This is an advance notice that after incubation in the W3C Credentials
Community Group, a charter for a new Decentralized Identifier Working
Group is under discussion:

Quoting from the draft charter, the mission of the Decentralized
Identifier Working Group would be to standardize the data model and
syntax of Decentralized Identifier Documents, which contain information
related to DIDs that enable a number of use cases.

The Credentials Community Group has also prepared a WG proposal:

an introductory DID primer:

and a Community Group Specification for Decentralized Identifiers as
input to the proposed Working Group:
 Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs)

We would welcome input and feedback before starting the formal charter
Public discussion is encouraged via issues raised on the Charter Draft
GitHub repository:

W3C Members may also discuss on w3c-ac-forum@w3.org.

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact
Wendy Seltzer, Strategy Lead, wseltzer@w3.org
