Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) - A Deeper Dive
Too Long; Didn't Read Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) - A Deeper Dive - is a new type of identifier that is cryptographically verifiable with high availability. DIDs are typically associated with cryptographic material, such as public keys, and service endpoints, for establishing secure communication channels. The use cases for DIDs include:Identifying people, organizations, and things. A DID document is something like a “blockchain hand-shake” between the information stored in the DID and on a blockchain. For the proper functionality of DIDs on the LTO network, any DID must be indexed first.
