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.
