Create Identity Keys and Subject DIDs

Issuers may want to create identity keypairs for multiple reasons, such as for signing payloads or for creating did:key DIDs.

There is also an option to fetch an identity keypair by inputting a Key ID (kid) as a request format.

Creating a Subject DID

cheqd Studio currently supports two types of subject DIDs:

  • did:key

  • did:vda

With the former, you can follow the did:key specification to create a subject DID based on a generated keypair.

With the latter, you can setup your did:vda subject DID on your Verida wallet. Using cheqd Studio, you will be able to send credentials to your Verida wallet and use it to store and securely back them up.
