DID Methods

DID Methods supported in DIDKit:

  • did-pkh: a did-key-like deterministic method for generating DIDs from blockchain addresses encoded and validated according to the emerging "CAIP" cross-chain addressing specification

  • did-key: the classic deterministic method for generating DIDs deterministically from a JWK file or other local key material

  • did-web: a DID method for publishing a DID document to a domain's "/.wellknown/" configuration directory, to be resolved over HTTPS.

  • did-webkey: a DID method designed in-house for deterministically deriving DID Documents from key material exposed by major web APIs; while we implemented it specifically for the SSH and GPG keys exposed and consumed by GitHub's APIs, it could readily be extended to analogous contexts.

  • did-ethr: the classic Ethereum-based DID method at the heart of uPort, Veramo, and many web3 dApp projects (implicit only; main-net indexing & resolution coming soon)

  • did-ion: a DID Method implementation using the Sidetree protocol atop Bitcoin.

  • did-tezos: a DID method based on Tezos accounts.

  • did-sol: the native DID method of the Solana blockchain and DeFi ecosystem.

  • did:onion: a DID method designed to be resolved over Tor-style onion routing
