Credential Statuses

The credentialStatus property is used to identify the status of a verifiable credential. It is an optional property (meaning when it's missing, the credential is not subject to any status change), but when specified, it includes the following mandatory fields:

  • id - a URI which identifies a location for the credential's status

  • type - an arbitrary string which identifies the type of the credential status (typically revocation or suspension)

Depending on the type, a credentialStatus property can contain additional fields, according to its model specification.

Currently, SSIKit supports the following credentialStatus methods:

More details on credentialStatus specification can be found at Verifiable Credential Data Model - Status.
