Best Practice: DIDs and Verifiable Credentials in the Construction Industry

Watch the video


Many different stakeholders are involved in a construction project, such as general contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, architects, and workers. The site operator must ensure that anyone entering and working on the site is legally authorized to do so.  Checking and verifying relevant documents (e.g. work permits, employee ID cards, training certificates) is a cumbersome and error-prone process that involves a lot of paperwork.

Decentralized identities with leveraging DIDs, wallets and verifiable credentials are the perfect solution to enable fully digital, fast, and privacy-preserving site access for all parties, eliminating paperwork and also ensuring that customs inspections can be completed in the shortest possible time.

This is achieved by

  • Bringing all parties in a trust relationship via their organizational wallets and DID connections, so they can verify and trust each other’s identity;
  • Enabling stakeholders to issue credentials that replace paper documents;
  • Providing all individuals requiring site access with a dedicated wallet app where they can store their credentials and request site access by presenting the relevant credentials at the entrance facility.

OpenID for Verifiable Credentials

Watch the video


OpenID for Verifiable Credentials (OID4VC) is a protocol family developed in the Digital Credentials Working Group (DCP WG) of the OpenID Foundation, which enables the development of Wallet-based applications. It has seen tremendous adoption in the last two years in different contexts and jurisdictions. This resulted in a lot of implementers feedback and increased participation in the WG. One of those initiatives, eIDAS 2.0, provided very high security and privacy requirements. This talk will give an update on the latest developments of OID4VC and an outlook on the topics that are planned to be addressed. It will also cover additional aspects important to strengthen OID4VC ecosystem, such as conformance testing, security analysis results and overview of the available Open Source implementations.
