Cryptography Review of W3C Verifiable Credentials Data Model (VCDM) and Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) Standards and Cryptography Implementation Recommendations
 by David Balenson & Nick Genise.

Abstract
Cryptography used by U.S. government entities in operational systems must conform to relevant federal government standards and requirements, including the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and National Institute of Technology (NIST) standards for use of cryptography. As part of its in-depth technical due-diligence to enable operational capabilities for DHS/CBP, DHS/PRIV and DHS/USCIS, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) sponsored independent nonprofit research center SRI International to conduct a cryptographic review of the W3C Verifiable Credentials Data Model and W3C Decentralized Identifiers standards. The review provided constructive feedback and recommendations for technology developers and W3C standards developers to increase their level of compliance with federal government standards.
