A verifiable claim is a piece of information that is cryptographically trustworthy. In Sovrin, a verifiable claim is shared as a proof and is anchored to the public ledger by a credential definition and public DID written by the credential issuer. Typically, this proof is in the form of a digital signature. A Sovrin Verifiable Claim may be verified by a public key associated with the Issuer’s DID. An example of a verifiable claim could be a digitally issued driver’s license.
