A capabilities-based authorization system, utilizing DIDs, Verifiable Credentials, Verifiable Presentations, etc.

ProjectID

eSSIF-IOC-24

Acronym

CBAS

Additional Info

This component is an implementation of a capabilities-based authorization system, utilizing DIDs, Verifiable Credentials, Verifiable Presentations, DID Comm (or JSON Web Messages), etc.
We believe that numerous relevant use cases (e.g. delegation, complex authorization logic, automated operations, etc.) can be simplified given a simple and extendible way to define and communicate credentials encoding object capabilities.
The intention is to focus on developing a usable implementation (alongside an open-source reference integration with the Jolocom SmartWallet and Jolocom Library) and avoid defining new standards wherever possible.

Enduser Relevance

The proposed component aims to be a building block, used to define higher level, use case specific SSI based authorization systems.
