We are pleased to announce the release of the Curity Identity Server 8.2.
Though minor, this release is a major milestone as it introduces the first parts of our plans to support decentralized identity with verifiable credentials. Version 8.2 also contains several other enhancements and fixes.
Here are some of the highlights:
Experimental Verifiable Credential Issuance (VCI) Support
The 8.2 release introduces the ability to issue verifiable credentials using the OpenID for Verifiable Credential Issuance draft specification. This experimental feature is available when enabled with a feature flag. We hope this will allow you to start experiment with credentials and planning how to use this new identity paradigm in products and services.
New Reference and Composite Claims Types
Another highlight is the addition of two new claim types to make the claims system more flexible. The first is the reference claim type which allows you to use the same claim data fetched from a particular source in different claims with different transformations. The second is the composite claim type which can be used to combine several claims into a single claim.
Token Issuers in the SDK for Token Procedure Plugins
This release introduces some improvements to the new (and still experimental) Token Issuer Procedure Plugin system which now includes the token issuers as SDK components. This makes the plugin development more streamlined and provides configuration guarantees to the injected issuers.
