Decentralized Identity (DID) Document

DID documents contain a set of data that describes a DID, including mechanisms, such as public keys and pseudonymous biometrics, that an entity can use to authenticate itself as the DID. A DID Document may also contain other attributes or claims describing the entity. These documents are graph-based data structures that are typically expressed using JSON-LD, but may be expressed using other compatible graph-based data formats.

Stability

Stability: 1 - Experimental. These features are still under active development and subject to non-backwards compatible changes, or even removal, in any future version. Use of the feature is not recommended in production environments. Experimental features are not subject to the Node.js Semantic Versioning model.

Installation

$ npm install arablocks/did-document

Usage

const { DIDDocument } = require('did-document')

// create a new DID document
const ddo = new DIDDocument({ id: did })
 
// Add a publicKey to an existing DID document
ddo.addPublicKey({
  id: `${did}#owner`,
  publicKeyHex: "ec84465527bea0f8c54ce6c42c0d7549a7163336655a8bcaf731f07eb2997c73",

doc.id

The Decentralized Identity to which the document belongs to

doc.publicKey

A lists public keys whose corresponding private keys are controlled by the entity identified by the DID identifier

doc.authentication

A list of mechanisms by which an entity can cryptographically prove that they are associated with a DID and DID Description

doc.service

Service endpoints represent any type of service that the DID entity wishes to advertise, including decentralized identity management services for further discovery, authentication, authorization, or interaction

doc.addPublicKey(publicKey)

Add a public key entity to the DID document

doc.addAuthentication(authentication)
