The Hyperledger implementation of self-sovereign identity (SSI) is traditionally associated with CL AnonCreds verifiable credential format, Aries exchange protocols based on DIDComm and an Indy ledger as a verifiable data registry (VDR). These are mature technologies used in production systems. Hyperledger Indy and CL AnonCreds played a key role in shaping self-sovereign identity before the establishment of various other SSI standards and specifications.
Nowadays such specifications as W3C VC, OpenID for Verifiable Credentials (OIDC4VC), SD-JWT and others gain increasing attention due to plans for adoption by European Digital Identity Architecture and Reference Framework, NIST, DHS etc. Moreover, although Indy Ledger is a great and proven VDR option for permissioned cases, nowadays permissionless proof-of-stake ledgers can be a reasonable alternative, as well as other distributed ledger technologies (DLT) from the Hyperledger family.
