Mobile Driver's License (ISO/IEC 18013-5) Module

This initiative is a part of the effort to make Aries Framework JavaScript (now Credo) a global framework by making it compliant with the standards defined in the European Digital Identity Architecture and Reference Framework (ARF).

Recently, the EU has been taking big steps toward the regulation and governance of digital identity solutions. This has been causing big waves globally in terms of what standards are gaining recognition. The Architecture Reference Framework (ARF) describes the current understanding of how Digital Identity will function in Europe. It describes the standards, architecture, and flows that the EU digital identity ecosystem needs to support. To build identity solutions that are interoperable and compliant with this ecosystem, new libraries and tools will have to be developed and existing ones adjusted.

This initiative involved the Animo team adding support for Mobile Driver's License (ISO/IEC 18013-5) credentials as outlined in the ARF to Aries Framework JavaScript (AFJ).

ISO/IEC 18013-5 is a standard that defines how to share driving license information on mobile devices. Although the specification focuses on driving licenses, the ISO/IEC 18013 group also defines the generic mDoc format. The Architecture Reference Framework (ARF) has adopted this standard to facilitate proximity verification flows.

🚧 This proposal has been fully funded and is currently being implemented. The results can be found in the different repositories surrounding Aries Framework JavaScript (now Credo).
