|SPICE -- Secure Patterns for Internet CrEdentials
The Secure Patterns for Internet CrEdentials (SPICE) mailing list is dedicated to discussions about "verifiable credentials." A verifiable credential is a set of cryptographically signed statements, typically about a uniquely identifiable subject. It operates on a three-party model involving an issuer (who issues the credential), a holder (who stores, and may present the credential to other parties), and a verifier (who verifies the credential's authenticity). Identity plays a key role in verifiable credentials, and non-anonymous use cases where disclosure of the subject identifier is common. Identities used with verifiable credentials also tend to be long lived and strongly bound to individuals or business entities.
