Use Messaging

Overview

Sending messages using MATTR VII can be achieved using a JSON Web Message (JWM) format, you can read more about this approach.

Messages sent to holders based on the subject DID can be read by the MATTR Wallet app to perform actions, there are 4 types of messages supported by the wallet.

  • Offer a credential using OIDC

  • Notify a change of revocation status

  • Start verify using a callback url

  • Send a credential directly

There are API operations to construct these messages, they need to be encrypted for the subject DID before sending to the service endpoint of the DID.

As the DID document for did:key method does not contain a service endpoint, messages sent to subjects will assume the MATTR service endpoint as a default

MATTR Wallet

End users of the MATTR Wallet mobile app are able to opt-in to notifications, this will create an inbox on a dedicated wallet backend. As DID's are created in the wallet they are registered against the inbox so messages can be routed to the mobile app using a push notification service. Push notifications are delivered to the wallet as encrypted payloads therefore cannot be read until the wallet is unlocked.

Platform to platform message communications will be available soon using MATTR VII and other interoperable services.
