Note that the group recently rebranded as the Identity Special Interest Group and the main page for their wiki has changed.  This page for the Identity Working Group has been archived and is being preserved to prevent links to this page from breaking.  Check out the new Identity Special Group page for the latest details for the group.
DescriptionThe purpose of the Identity Working Group is to discuss, research, and document ways to capture, store, transmit and use Identities on the DLT, specifically for the projects in the Hyperledger greenhouse. The Identities can be of nodes that participate in the running of the DLT or entities that transact on the DLT.


Link to the charter.


The scope is limited to the various lifecycle events and use of Identity needed to securely participate in the Hyperledger Project DLT implementations.  We host a series of presentations on the Identity aspects of blockchain implementations in Hyperledger projects.

In scope is the dissemination of information on various pure Identity projects like Indy and Aries. Also in scope are efforts to launch such projects in Hyperledger  or create identity labs in Hyperledger labs.

The Hyperledger Implementer's  calls track implementations in the various implementation tracks: Indy, Aries and others. 

We are also keyed into the wider Identity ecosystem, globally. Standards work around Identity is also reported on; specifically we track the Verifiable Credential Group,  DIF, TOIP and W3C DID specification.

In addition, we are working on a whitepaper on Identity, 

How to Get Involved

The working group calls have presentations from the coalface of Identity related work happening globally and healthy discussions around it. All intere sted people are welcome and we ask that you introduce yourself including why you are on the call and how you can help.

We are working on an Identity WG Paper draft. Any contributions to this are also welcome.

  1. We need space for Meeting Minutes- will need to set it up!

    1. Meeting Agendas and Notes is where you can put meeting minutes (under the Meeting Notes page). They will then automatically appear above.

  2. Thanks, I started putting them there

  3. Can we collaborate on these just like google docs?

    1. Yes. As long as the page exists, you can do collaborative editing on the page.

  4. I wanted to be sure this group was aware/invited to the T3 Innovation Network (Project 10 specifically). Very similar and complementary community/work -

    Reach out w/ any questions: wkendal at gmail dot com (smile)

  5. Thank you Vipin for today meeting and Dan Bachenheimer for a great presentation on KTDI and Standards

  6. Hello guys,

    I am new on hyperledger and starting to build a POC around digital identity , on which channel can I ask technical questions and get assistance ?

  7. Hello Thapelo,

    Are you using specific technologies for this?

    If using Indy please ask on Indy related channels; for other hyperledger related technologies use specific channels for those.

    If the questions are general, then the Identity WG channel is the best.
