Verifiable Claims encode high-definition data, which has the following characteristics:

  1. Resolution to decentralised identifier keys (DID)

  2. Linked-data contexts for resolving ontologies

  3. Cryptographic verifiability of the data object

  4. Content addressability (each claim has a unique identity)

  5. Cryptographic authentication of the subject identifier
