SSI framework is adopted in Germany and throughout the EU as a key privacy-by-design framework. Through its membership in DIACC, One37 contributes to the future of digital identity by leveraging the lessons from its own real-life use-cases in Canada where Verifiable Credentials play an increasingly crucial role.
The international digital identity industry has moved comprehensively towards decentralised verifiable credentials and strong client-side authentication tools (especially through the FIDO Alliance); Australia needs to catch up with these standards.
The Australian states are implementing digitised credentials at a rapid rate, refocusing from Who a citizen is, to What attributes and claims they need to prove online; DTA risks being left behind by these developments.

verification is off-chain (and generally fast/inexpensive, depending on the provider), and since this avoids on-chain storage of potentially correlatable data

DIDComm defines how messages are composed into application-level protocols and workflows.
Advanced DIDComm Messaging Karim Stekelenburg (Animo Solutions)
for DIDComm to provide a potential replacement for commonly used chat protocols like WhatsApp (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP)), Telegram (MTProto), or Signal (Signal Protocol), it needs to support modern chat features we use everyday
Through the DID Specification, service endpoints and DIDComm, Impervious has interlaced DIDs with Bitcoin Lightning, IPFS, WebRTC and resilient relays to introduce a new peer-to-peer internet standard with practical applications for mitigating censorship and surveillance risk.
I made this today: https://github.com/OR13/endor [...] nice thing about endorsing W3C Verifiable Credentials is that they are already an abstraction that applies to "non software supply chain" use Cases [...] we model cyber physical supply chain flows

The shortest definition of Web3 reb00ted
web2: read + write
web3: read + write + own
If you want to explain Web3 in the simplest language, I think it is a decentralized collaboration model.
We’ll all be using personal keys, blockchains and decentralized applications to limit the amount of personal information we expose to data brokers, data breaches and dodgy business practices.
Web5 Roadmap TBD
Our major deliverables include:
Decentralized Identifier network node on production and publicly available
Decentralized Web Node on production and publicly available
Verifiable Credential service on production and available to partners
Decentralized Web Platform client/server SDK with all components bundled in a single package
Wallet in publicly usable state across Web, desktop and mobile
Decentralized Web Application runtime ready for developer reliance
“Decentralized Society: Finding Web3’s Soul” has generated much discussion as a more advanced and beneficial way of applying an NFT-type technology to encode “social relationships of trust” in Soul-Based Tokens.
