For the past year, the team at BC Gov and contributors to the Aries CloudAgent Python project have been working to extend the capabilities of the agent software while maintaining flexibility in the face of evolving standards and use cases. Historically, the project has depended heavily on the Hyperledger Indy SDK, but moving forward this dependency is shifting onto a trio of new Hyperledger projects. Indy-VDR (ledger transactions), Indy-Credx (Indy verifiable credentials), and Aries-Askar (secure storage) have all been contributed in the past year and will continue to evolve independently.
