Type: Tool kit, infrastructure
Hyperledger Aries is one of the Hyperledger projects hosted by The Linux Foundation. Hyperledger Aries provides a shared, reusable, interoperable tool kit designed for initiatives and solutions focused on creating, transmitting and storing verifiable digital credentials. It is infrastructure for blockchain-rooted, peer-to-peer interactions. It includes a shared cryptographic +++wallet for blockchain clients as well as a communications protocol for allowing off-ledger interaction between those clients. This project consumes the cryptographic support provided by Hyperledger Ursa, to provide secure secret management and decentralized key management functionality. Hyperledger Aries was initially contributed by developers from Sovrin Foundation, the Government of British Columbia, and other Indy community developers.
