A Decentralized Key Management Infrastructure (DKMI) is essential to any SSI implementation. DKMI is the cryptographic infrastructure upon which the necessary authentication keys are exchanged between SSI actors. In 2020, a new type of ultra-secure, ledger agnostic DKMI made its way through the SSI community: Key Event Receipt Infrastructure (KERI). Currently being developed by DIF (the Decentralized Identity
Foundation) KERI is making its first appearance in real world applications as the first truly & fully decentralized identity system.
With KERI Ecosystem components developers of SSI solutions will be able to:
- move between networks and ledgers with your identifiers (can work with blockchain and non-blockchained networks)
- delegate identifier to another identity (no matter on which network or system it was created)
- provide key provenance log for production ready Verifiable Credential management
- recovery from key lost through pre-rotation event
- use your identifiers at scale
- resolve any identifier through Distributed Hash Table algorithms without relying on centralize resolver or network.
- operate with any type of Verifiable Credentials across network
