<mprorock> it is a means of using did:key style stuff while pointing to external public keys - definitely interesting
<manu_sporny> We're trying to hit 1,000 DID Methods by the end of the year! :P
<kristina> why do we want even more did methods?
<manu_sporny> /me was joking, we definitely don't want more DID Methods unless the new ones provide utility.
<by_caballero> sorry i promised 5 minutes
<by_caballero> apologies to dmitri and derek
<by_caballero> and kaliya
<manu_sporny> I would like us to have a deeper discussion on the topic at a later time... can see benefits and drawbacks.
<kristina> me too
<mprorock> i think community scope discussion in order at later time
Topic: EDV 101
<heather_vescent> Fantastic Manu. Thank you
<orie> Sounds more like standards compliant "last pass"
All operations between individual and EDV client is unencrypted but once it hits the EDV server it only sees encrypted data. ✪
<derek_trider> Great, thanks Manu!
<by_caballero> not having did:pkh is a challenge to adoption ;)
<manu_sporny> ha! *throws duck*
<kristina> are there links to the implementations if available? don't see in the draft spec
<manu_sporny> There are not :(
<manu_sporny> I don't know if we have a list anywhere
Dimitri: Current status is it is actively being worked on by a Joint working group by CCG and DIF, weekly calls and we have two specs, they are not chartered for work groups. Challenges to adoption: one of the challenges is that unlike other storage services which manage your encryption keys for you, one of the core goals is you and your client/software manage your keys. The storage provider don't have any access to your data. The reason is that managing encryption keys is still a very new and a challenge from both human UI, and from a tooling and library perspective. We feel its overcome-able with the usual array of tools, user education etc. ✪
<kristina> oh ok, I thought I heard there are in the question, thanks!
<derek_trider> @manu Maybe we should add a list to the spec
<manu_sporny> Kristina, there are implementations - we just don't have the list written down anywhere.
<manu_sporny> Derek, I do think that would be a good idea.
<orie> demo videos related to the universal wallet spec
Dimitri: it is very much a part of the design consideration of the group, it was the primary use case we started with. we didn't want to presume people would use EDVs as backing stores, and most shouldn't assume EDVs behind the scenes, but EDVs have good stories to tell in data portability and not being locked into vendors etc. ✪
