DIDs are an effort by the W3C Credentials Community Group and the wider Internet identity community to define identifiers that can be registered, updated, resolved, and revoked without any dependency on a central authority or intermediary.
Local identifiers in Decentralized Identifier should match this
Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Decentralized Identifier should match
this regular expression:
namespaceEmbeddedInLUIas true. This means that you may see local unique identifiers that include a redundant prefix and delimiter (also known as a banana) and therefore look like a CURIE. For Decentralized Identifier, the banana looks like
did:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like
did:sov:WRfXPg8dantKVubE3HX8pw(instead of the canonical form
sov:WRfXPg8dantKVubE3HX8pw) and CURIEs for this resource that look like
None:did:sov:WRfXPg8dantKVubE3HX8pw(instead of the canonical form
None:sov:WRfXPg8dantKVubE3HX8pw). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 2 mappings to external registries for this resource with 1 unique external prefixes.
|Registry Name||Registry Metaprefix||External Prefix||Curate|
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
is used to demonstrate the provides available for
this resource. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
