Sovrin Test Network Trust Anchor Registration
This form is used to add a Trust Anchor to the Sovrin Test Network (STN).
You must provide a DID/verkey pair that does not yet exist on the STN
ledger. The Sovrin Command Line Interface (CLI) is one way to generate a
- DID – Decentralized Identifier (DID): A globally
unique identifier (e.g., a UUID) that has no special cryptographic
properties. In Sovrin, DIDs are usually 16 bytes. DIDs must have
associated verification keys and signing keys to interact securely. The
DID must be a 16 byte base58 encoded string/UUID.
- Verkey – Verification Key: A published asymmetric
public key that's used to decrypt a message. Decryption with this key
proves authenticity, because the message's sender necessarily held the
corresponding signing key. Verification keys can be revoked; the current
verification key for a given identifier must be looked up on the Sovrin
ledger. A verkey can be either an abbreviated verkey or full verkey. An
abbreviated verkey is a 16 byte base58 encoded string that begins with a
tilde ('~'). A full verkey is a 32 byte base58 encoded string where the
first 16 bytes is the 16 byte DID.
- Email – An email address allows Sovrin to notify
you of changes to the STN that may affect you or your applications.
