9. Verification of a Credential


In the digital world, credential verification is a key process to ensure the authenticity and integrity of information.

Verification Process

The verification process begins with obtaining the verifiable credential, which is the only data required for the process. This credential contains the proofs that are essential for verification.
To verify a credential, the input JSON must be minimized and the appropriate key used to respect the format expected by the API. Verification is done through a request that includes the verifiable credential. When executing this request, the API returns a boolean value: true if the credential is authentic and false if it has been altered.

Importance of Verification

Verification plays a crucial role in digital security, as it ensures that credentials have not been modified. Changing even a single number or comma on the credential will result in a failed verification, demonstrating the effectiveness of the system in protecting against alterations and forgeries.
