DIDComm is the messaging protocol implemented in Hyperledger Aries that provides utility for DID-based relationships. Many may think DIDComm is just a way to exchange credentials, but it's more than that. DIDComm is a protocol layer capable of supporting specialized application protocols for specific workflows. Because of its general nature and inherent support for self-sovereign relationships, DIDComm provides a basis for a self-sovereign internet much more private, enabling, and flexible than the one we've built using Web 2.0 technologies. This talk introduces DIDComm, discusses its protocological nature, and presents use cases in the Internet of Things. Demonstrations of DIDComm protocol interactions will be shown on the Pico platform, which implements the Aries Cloud Agent (ACA) specification.
