High-Level Architecture

dSunbird-RC's credentialling service is an amalgamation of three microservices.

  • Identity Microservice: This service is the central lynchpin to maintain identities across the system. All identities in Sunbird-RC are DID-compliant and are web-resolvable. The other microservices (Credential Schema Service and Credential Service) depend on this for generating any identity.

  • Credential Schema Microservice: This service stores the schema of the Verifiable Credential along with the associated view template.

  • Credential Issuance Microservice: This is the core issuance service. This service is called with the payload, which is then transformed into a W3C-compliant Verifiable Credential in JSON-LD format. The payload is then signed using the private key which was generated as part of the original Issuer creation.
