Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

In this session, Drummond Reed and Devin Fisher of Evernym presented the same demonstration of the prototype code for DKMS (Decentralized Key Management System) that they gave the previous week for Anil John, Program Manager for Identity and Data Privacy at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate. This represents the culmination of a one-year contract with DHS to research the requirements and develop a design and architecture for a key management system for broad market acceptance of DIDs (Decentralized Identifiers). 

The slides for the demo at available at:

The DKMS Design and Architecture V3 document is publicly available on the Hyperledger Indy github repo at:

The Q & A during the demonstration covered many questions that are answered in the design and architecture document above. There was strong interest in follow up work, particularly on usability of the offline key recovery and social key recovery options.
