DID URLs, DIDs, URIs, https://www.w3.org/TR/did-core/#did-url-syntax

Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

DID URLs start with a DID, then they can have path, query, fragment.

DID URL syntax components work very similar to HTTP URL syntax components, but sometimes are also DID method-dependent.

Fragment depends on the media type of the primary resource.

Query parameters defined by DID Core: versionId, versionTime, service, relativeRef, hl

Some examples where DID URLs are used:

  • In the did:indy method to reference schemas, credential definitions, and other ledger objects
  • By Decentralized Web Nodes (DWN) to reference specific objects inside a DWN.

DID URLs inherit some useful properties of DIDs, e.g. decentralization and persistence.
